The sole purpose of the Willington Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars (WSFDFS) is to provide scholarship assistance to Willington residents who are graduating high school seniors or have completed their first year of post-secondary education. This support is independent of the particular high school the students attend. The support is provided to help those who intend to pursue post-secondary education at an accredited two or four-year institution. All funds raised by the WSFDFS go to scholarships, with less than 5% spent on mailing, non-profit fees, and insurance.  The scholarships include both merit awards which are based solely on academic data and need based awards which are based on merit plus a financial need component. All scholarships are reviewed blind with respect to applicants' names.
