2020-2021 Scholarship Application


















I hereby acknowledge that the above information is accurate and complete to the best of my knowledge.  I also allow the release of my total number of accumulated credits, my GPA, my program of study, my major, whether I have a demonstrated financial need as determined by a processed FAFSA, and any other information deemed necessary for a scholarship selection to the appropriate scholarship committees.


I also acknowledge that donors of scholarships may want to have information about recipients and that if I am selected as such, the information I provide in this application as well as the information released to the scholarship committee may be given to the donor.


I agree to abide by the provisions attached to any Western Connecticut State University Foundation or WCSU scholarship award if I am selected. I also understand that if selected for a scholarship that requires additional information (writing sample, community service activities, etc.), I will provide this information prior to disbursement of the scholarship. I plan to attend WCSU during the semesters in which the scholarship will be issued.  I understand that scholarships are awards that will be distributed in two equal parts during the fall and spring semesters as long as I continue to meet the criteria of the scholarship.


I also agree that if selected to receive a scholarship whose donor is living, I will write a thank you letter to the donor within 4 weeks of the award notification.  (No scholarship funds will be posted to a student's account until the thank you letter has been received by the Office of Institutional Advancement.) Further, I understand that all future correspondence regarding this application and scholarship award will be through my university e-mail address.
