W-JCC Scholarship Fund

The WJCC Scholarship Fund provides college scholarships for students graduating from Jamestown, Lafayette, and Warhill High Schools. Students from Walsingham Academy are eligible to apply for the Paula Kirtland Scholarship and the Lennarz Family Scholarship.

Scholarships are awarded without discrimination, in consideration of these factors: curriculum difficulty, class rank, extra-curricular activities, application essay, and financial need. Please review the list of scholarships available, and remember this list will be updated as new scholarships become available.

It is not necessary for a student to show financial need in order to be eligible for a WJCC Scholarship Fund scholarship. Those that have financial need as a criteria will be noted on the application form. *Please note, WCF will only award scholarships to students attending schools in the United States and its territories.
