Good morning! Attached, please find a copy of our 2017 Scholarship Application for WCS seniors. The REALTORS® Good Works Foundation, a philanthropic arm of Williamson County Association of REALTORS® is pleased to make available to all Williamson County, Tennessee public high school seniors, the opportunity to apply to receive a $5,000 scholarship to use towards their higher education. As a reminder, in 2016, we awarded $10,000 in scholarships to 2 deserving seniors in Williamson County. We look forward to receiving many applications this year and awarding more students with assistance to further their education as the post-secondary level.
The completed application form should be returned to the Williamson County Association of REALTORS®, to my attention, no later than Friday, March 31, 2017. In addition to the application, the following items must be included in your packet (your application will not be considered without all of the items requested):
- High School transcript (a sealed copy from your high school must be in your packet, the seal cannot be broken). Immunization records are not needed.
- A minimum of 2 letters of recommendation from individuals involved in your school, work or outside activities.
Once all packets have been received by the Williamson County Association of REALTORS® office, the 2017 Scholarship Committee members will meet to review all scholarship applications. At that time, candidates will be selected for personal interviews conducted by a minimum of 2 committee members.
If selected as a candidate for interview, you may be asked to provide proof of household income in the form of a FAFSA application and/or 2016 tax information. The interviews will be scheduled after school hours in Mid-April. Once the interview date & time is accepted by you, it cannot be rescheduled. If you cannot make your scheduled interview time you will forfeit your opportunity and the next candidate in line will be contacted. Once all interviews have taken place, the Committee will select the scholarship recipient. Recipients are selected based upon their academic achievements, extra-curricular involvement, personal character, and financial need.
Additionally, for convenience, we have included the ability of the students to complete the application this year ON-LINE. Please note, that all additional documents will still need to be mailed by the deadline in order to be considered. The online application is available at the link below.
