The Scholarship Application Portal is now closed. It will reopen November 2023. Please apply by December 13, 2023 for the 2023-2024 academic year using the Scholarship America Portal.

The Wellroot Family Services Scholarship Program recognizes students for their community service, academic performance, and demonstrated leadership and participation in school. Awards ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 will be granted for the 2023-2024 academic year.

To apply, students must plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate or graduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school in the United States for the entire 2023-2024 academic year. For most awards, applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent). In addition to the above criteria, some of the funds within this program give preference to those who are, or have been, associated with or received assistance services from the Wellroot Family Services (formerly UMCH).
