ScholarshipTOP

The Westside Foundation and the Westside Alumni Association are proud to award scholarships and honorariums each year to graduating seniors.

The Westside Alumni Association awards as many as six scholarships to our graduates annually. Students can contact the WHS Guidance Office to begin applying for these scholarships after the first semester of their senior year.

The Westside Foundation administers funds for donor-established scholarships and honorariums. Student scholarship awards are presented in May at the Honors Convocation and staff awards are presented in June at the annual staff closing meeting.
