Washington Crossing Foundation Scholarship

Scholarship Sponsored by Washington Crossing Foundation

Value: $5,000
Awards Available: 31

The Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the ANNUAL NATIONAL WASHINGTON CROSSING FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS for STUDENTS COMPLETING TWELFTH (or final high school year) in 2024 who are planning careers in government service.

We invite you to explore our web site, www.gwcf.org, which contains all of the information candidates should require to prepare and submit an application. Each interested student is invited to write a one-page essay stating why he or she plans a career in government service including any inspiration to be derived from the leadership of George Washington in his famous crossing of the Delaware. The student must confine the essay to viewpoint, attitude, and purpose in choice of career.

This essay must be accompanied by a recommendation from the high school principal or guidance counselor evaluating the student's achievements, academic and otherwise––particularly any preparation relevant to his or her career choice––along with transcripts, national testing scores, résumé and other supporting information of the applicant's choice as described in the Official Rules.

In past years, winners attending will have their expenses paid for transportation, food and housing in Pennsylvania for the weekend, to attend the Scholarship Awards Ceremony. All winners are required to attend the Scholarship Awards Program on Saturday April 20, 2024 to win their Scholarship.

The Washington Crossing Foundation is pleased to offer a variety of national and regional college scholarships ranging from $500 to $5,000. Students planning to attend one of the Military Academies or who have been awarded full four-year scholarships will be eligible for a one-year award with proof of valid educational expenses. Students do not apply for specific scholarships; an application is automatically considered in each category for which it qualifies.
