All current WHS students (K-5) are eligible to apply for a Summer Enrichment Scholarship except for those who received a scholarship during the previous year.


Scholarship grants may be approved up to the amount of $40.


Enrichment programs must be academic in nature and in the areas of:


* Summer Academic Tutoring

* Reading

* Music/Art/Drama Programs

* Writing

* Nature/Science Camps

* History

* Scout Camps

* Fine Arts

* Any SD44 Academic Program

* Creative Expression


Exclusions: Daycare, classes/lessons that child already participates year-round (i.e. dance/music, etc.) or team sports/swim lessons.


Key Information:

  • Of all applicants meeting scholarship requirements, 25 will be randomly selected by Hammerschmidt administration to receive final awards. A maximum of 25 awards at $40 each will be granted.

  • Award applicants who did not receive PTA Summer Enrichment Scholarships the prior year (2017) will be given first priority. Once awards are determined from the non-successive applicants, if the Scholarship budget has not been exhausted, additional awards may be determined from the pool of repeat applicants, drawn by lottery. Total awards will not exceed PTA budget limits.
