Vocational Scholarship Criteria for The WDVF Vocational Scholarship Fund


Purpose: The WDVF may in its discretion award Vocational Scholarship grants on behalf of individuals (paid directly to qualified educational private or public institution). These grants may be used exclusively for tuition at a technical, four-year college, university, or accredited law school institutions that normally maintain a regular faculty, a student body, a physical location and a curriculum, as described as Internal Revenue Co 170(b)(1)(A)(ii), and for fees, books, supplies, and equipment required for courses at such institutions or for room and board expenses payable to the institution. Vocational Scholarship grants will usually be administered through WDVF Scholarship Funds whereby donors or their representatives may make recommendations as to recipients of scholarship grants. The WDV Foundation will approve all scholarship programs established by such Scholarship Funds in advance of any solicitation of applications. The Board of Directors voted to approve a vocational scholarship grant committee. In all cases, the Vocational Scholarship Committee will independently investigate to ensure that donor's recommendations for award recipients are consistent with these Vocational Scholarship Guidelines and Procedures, the Foundation's charitable purposes, and its mission. The Foundation will make the ultimate decision regarding scholarship award distributions. Vocational Scholarship Grants may be awarded for one or two years. The applicants: individual or college-bound high school seniors based on demonstrated academic achievement, challenging financial situation status, and an express interest in pursuing a vocational education is subject to be considered and encourage to submit an application.

Criteria: The students eligible for assistance must be graduating high school seniors and individuals who reside in Washington and intend to continue their vocational education at a technical, four-year college, university, or accredited law school.

Applicants are encouraged to submit a vocational scholarship application.


Guidelines: Scholarships will be awarded on an annual basis and disbursed in one payment or two equal payments in January and August. Students must continue to attend classes and maintain no lower than a 3.0 grade-point average (or equivalent).


Amount: Each vocational scholarship awarded will be a maximum of $2,000 annually to be pay in one payment of two equal instalments.
