Scholarships Program Description
The GWA Chamber Scholarships Program provides academic scholarships annually in the amount of $ 500 for one outstanding graduating senior selected from each of the Wheatland-Chili Central School District and the Caledonia-Mumford Central School District who are planning to attend a College or Technical School. Each academic scholarship candidate must complete and submit a scholarship application that includes a 500-word essay of their own that describes their interests, community involvement, volunteering activities and future plans. The GWA Chamber works in conjunction with each School Districts' representatives to collect applications. All submitted applications are evaluated by a GWA Chamber Scholarships Committee that selects the most deserving candidates for scholarship awards at the respective schools' graduation ceremonies. Anyone interested in serving on the Scholarships Committee please contact the GWA Chamber via email.
