Lifelong Learning Grants for Post-Secondary (Undergraduate) School

The Foundation provides both need-based and merit-based lifelong learning grants to students in Washington County, with a few grants also available to students in Greene County.

While each grant opportunity has its own criteria and requirements, the Foundation utilizes a universal grant application for the opportunities outlined in this section. An essay response, FAFSA Student Aid Report, and/or transcript may be required for a student to be considered for certain grants.

The universal application will indicate any necessary supporting documentation required. The Foundation has some discretion to expand the criteria for some funds, when no applicant meets the identified criteria.

All lifelong learning grants are made payable to the educational institution the student is attending. Questions regarding the application process should be directed to

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

Please Note: A life-long learning grant can be rescinded if it is determined, in the sole discretion of the WCCF, that a student’s application contained information that was inaccurate, that upon consideration of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.
