The WJCC Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for students graduating from Jamestown, Lafayette, and Warhill High Schools.
The Fund is a community-wide effort to recognize the accomplishments of our students as they graduate from high school and support their further educational achievements.
Each year the number of deserving applicants grows, and each year the cost of higher education rises.
In 2012, 41 scholarships valued at $36,160 were awarded to Lafayette, Jamestown, and Warhill High School Students.
Our 2013 goal is to raise $60,000 and help 60 local students.
Please help our students meet the challenges of tomorrow by supporting their higher education goals:
Encourage your employer and civic organizations to contribute.
Encourage seniors who will be attending college or technical school to apply for scholarships.
The Scholarship Committee consists entirely of volunteers. You can volunteer by using the contact information below.

Sources of funding for scholarships include:
- community organizations and businesses
- individual community members
- past scholarship recipients and/or their parents
- Fundraising events of the Scholarship Fund Committee
Generous donors are also helping build an endowment that will generate income for future scholarships.
Scholarships are awarded, without discrimination, in consideration of these factors: curriculum difficulty, class rank, extra-curricular activities, application essay, and financial need.
It is not necessary for a student to show financial need in order to be eligible for a WJCC Scholarship Fund scholarship.
