Selction Process

The Scholarship Committee of the Foundation’s Board of Directors will review all completed applications, making recommendation to the Board for final approval. For General Scholarships, students must be Wayne County, PA residents, attending either public or private schools, or a student at Wallenpaupack Area High School for scholarships specific to Wallenpaupack Area High School Students. Selection is based on academic achievement, community involvement and financial need.  For Donor Advised scholarships, the Foundation’s  Scholarship Committee reviews all applications and makes selections aligned with the scholarship sponsor’s directions. Students selected for a scholarship will be notified in writing in early June. Students will then need to respond to that notification with information about the school to which they have committeed in order for the scholarship check to be issued.
