Each year the Rotary Club of Waynesboro offers two levels of scholarships to students of Waynesboro Senior High School.
– Thompson Scholarships are offered to two applicants each year who are qualified academically, exhibit service to others, and need financial help in completing a four year collegiate degree. This scholarship was established in 1993 by Rotarian William W. Thompson in memory of his father, William A. Thompson, a former Rotary President. The current value of this scholarship is $4000 for each selected candidate and is distributed $500 per semester.
– The Waynesboro Rotary Merit Scholarship is based on the Rotary motto “Service above Self” and is presented to two individuals who achieve academic excellence as well as demonstrate their commitment to their school and community. The current value of this scholarship to each selected candidate is $1000 distributed as a lump sum.
Deadline for applications is Friday, April 19, 2019. Applications can be downloaded here Thompson Scholarship Application 2019 and here Waynesboro Rotary Merit Scholarship Application 2019 or at the WASHS Guidance Office.
