The Scholarship is to be used towards college expenses. It is given out yearly to a member of the Far West Masters Scholarship Program. To be eligible you must already be a member of the Far West Masters Scholarship Program and be accepted to an accredited Junior College, University or vocational school for the coming fall. The award will be distributed over 4 years based on the recipient’s continued good standing in school. The recipient will be expected to be a full time student, to carry 12 units per semester, to strive for a 3.5 gpa and to give the Scholarship Program updates on their progress each Summer in order to receive the next award installment. Winners do not have to participate in further athletics of any kind.
The original Wattenmaker funding has been distributed. This years award will be at a minimum of $2500 but will most likely increase based on fundraising
Applications are distributed to existing members of the Masters Scholarship Program that will potentially be entering school in the fall. They will be due May 15, 2019.
Awards will be based on a combination of academic scholarship, exemplary work ethic and focus, leadership, citizenship and financial need. They are not based on athletic achievement or athletic success.
The application for this scholarship is brief, as all people applying have already applied and have been accepted into the Masters Scholarship Program. Additionally most applicants will have participated in the Masters Program for many years and are therefore well-known to the committee reviewing these applications based on their previous interactions.
