Witherell Memorial Education Scholarship Fund
Administered by the Westhampton Cong. United Church of Christ
Established in 2018 by a bequest from Carol R. Witherell, this fund will provide financial assistance to students of any age seeking education above the secondary level.
To be eligible for a scholarship the applicant must be a resident of Westhampton and/or an active participant in the life of the Westhampton Congregational United Church of Christ, who:
a) is a current high school senior intending to enroll in a post-secondary program or course
of study that leads to a degree or a specialized certification in the coming academic year
b) is a student already enrolled in a post-secondary program or course of study that leads
to a degree or a specialized certification and intends to continue their studies in the
coming academic year
c) is a person who has completed high school/GED not currently enrolled in a post-
secondary program or course of study but who intends to enroll in a program in the
coming academic year.
Awards will be based on financial need, school attendance or work history, community involvement, and evidence of serious interest in furthering your education. While academic standing may be considered, it will not be the primary determining factor of an award. All applicants and recipients are eligible to reapply in subsequent years, with repeat awards being made at the discretion of the selection committee.
