Deadline has passed for our 2019 Scholarship program.
The Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation (EWVCF) administers scholarship funds for Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan County residents pursuing an education in a post-secondary setting.
Each scholarship fund has its own selection criteria, which is used to evaluate and determine scholarship awards. Please refer to the 2019 Scholarship Criteria for a list of scholarship funds and their specific criteria.
Some of our scholarships require a separate application. Please see below for more information.
The Overington Scholarship provides financial assistance to offset costs of K-12 private faith-based school tuition, OR, to offset costs associated with homeschool environment, such as textbooks, supplies, computer purchase, etc.
The J. Oakley Seibert Scholarship is for Eastern Panhandle residents who have earned an undergraduate degree that are planning to attend law school. Preference is given to first-year law students who express a good faith intent to return to the Eastern Panhandle to study law.
The Deborah, Leslie, and Christopher Bright Scholarship is for high school students (public or homeschooled) in grades 9-12 who are interested in pursuing in-depth experiences in STEAM-based subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). Previously Bright Scholarship recipients have attended an Astronomy Camp at Alfred University, music camps, the Fallingwater Architecture Camp, summer intensives at HARID Conservatory and the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, and pre-college courses at Brown University.
The Terry Lee Walker, Jr. Scholarship benefits graduating seniors from a Berkeley or Jefferson County high school or home-school, planning to attend a college or university in West Virginia. Selection is based on financial need, extra curricular activities, good conduct, and at least a cumulative 2.8 GPA, with preference given to students who are “First in the Family” and/or students seeking a degree in business and those unlikely to receive other WV scholarships such as PROMISE. Every applicant consents to have their name and school name shared with Margaret Walker (or her designee) and be presented with a “nonmonetary gift”, when possible, in a public setting.
