THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF SCHOLARSHIPS
✓ NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS
National scholarships are offered to all students in the U.S.A., who meet the
scholarship criteria. National Scholarships will be the bulk of the
scholarships posted from September through early January. The
deadlines for the National Scholarships range from September
through June. Some of the scholarships are also Regional or State-based
scholarships. We will group those scholarship categories with the “National”
designation to keep the “Local” scholarships their own separate entity.
✓ LOCAL SCHOLARSHIPS
Local Scholarships are offered to students who reside in Waldwick and/or
attend Waldwick High School. These scholarships are offered by the school,
community, and local service organizations. Local Scholarships will be
published in January, February and March. The local scholarships have
deadline dates of March, April and early May.
HOW SCHOLARSHIPS ARE POSTED
JR/SR WEEKLY BULLETIN
Scholarships will be posted in the Jr/Sr Weekly Bulletin which
will be emailed to students and parents every week (Friday)
starting early September.
SCHOLARSHIP SUMMARY LIST
A summary of all scholarships posted to date will be emailed out on
a monthly basis.
