How are students chosen for a scholarship?
Our scholarship committees, who include Board of Director members, current and former mentors review and assign the funds. Among their qualifications, seniors must have been active in the program for 3 years, expect to graduate from a participating high school and have no unexcused absences from the WOT mentoring sessions.
With 64% of our students reporting, they are first generation to enroll in higher education, we are proud to support their accomplishments. A number of our students have been accepted in to Ivy League schools.
