2018 WFA Merit Scholarship Applications due April 30

The WFA will award up to two $650 merit scholarships awards for college this year to local graduating high school seniors, preferably with a demonstrated interest in river/environmental protection.  The award is designated as a “merit” scholarship; academic criteria and community citizenship will be evaluated, not financial need. Students who are Westport residents or who are sponsored by a WFA member are eligible to apply.

Students may download the application from the WFA website at or pick one up from their local high school guidance office. The completed application is due by April 30th.  The selected recipient(s) will be announced by June 1st and will receive a check after satisfactory completion of the first semester of college.
