Lifelong Learning Grants for Graduate School and Other Educational Institutions

The grant cycle opens on March 1st and applications are due by April 1st.

The Foundation provides a limited number of need-based and merit-based life-long learning grants to qualifying students attending a graduate school or other educational institution. Grant requests are accepted for the following funds:

Linda LeFever Scholarship Fund

For current residents of Washington County or Allegheny County, PA, who are attending the Heinz College of Carnegie Mellon University.

Washington County Visiting Nurses Scholarship Fund

For second-year or subsequent-year nursing students who have resided in Washington County for a minimum of two years. Prior recipients are eligible to re-apply.

Please Note: A lifelong learning grant can be rescinded if it is determined, in the sole discretion of the WCCF, that a student’s application contained information that was inaccurate, that upon consideration of facts unknown at the time the application was evaluated that the student, or the program the student intends to attend, fails to meet the grant qualifications, or that through a change in circumstances the student no longer meets the grant qualifications. Other circumstances that could lead to the recission of a grant include but are not limited to: if a student is placed on academic and/or disciplinary probation, or if a student does not enroll full-time in a program of study for the time period in which the award is to be in effect. The WCCF has the sole and exclusive authority to make decisions as to eligibility.
