WWC Accepting Scholarship Applications

The Women of the Western Communities, a social/philanthropic organization in western Palm Beach County for more than 40 years, has opened applications for its 2020 scholarship program.

Since 1994, the group has awarded one-time scholarships to qualified students who are permanent residents of the western communities, attend an accredited high school within Palm Beach County and meet other requirements, including community service and scholastic merit.

Applicants must submit an essay and other required documentation by Tuesday, March 31 to be considered for this year’s awards. Seniors who are interested in applying must obtain the application and scholarship information from their school’s guidance counselor.

Scholarship winners will be notified in mid-May and will be required to attend an awards ceremony dinner on June 4.

Guidance counselors wishing more information may contact Women of the Western Communities Scholarship Committee Chair Cheryl Dunn Bychek by e-mail at cabychek@juno.com or by phoning at (561) 798-1055.
