The Luigi Wewege Foundation Scholarship

The Luigi Wewege Foundation scholarship was created with the belief that everyone who has a desire to attend college or university should. Research shows that this has not been the case, due to higher education becoming increasingly more expensive over the last several decades. Although by answering a simple essay question, applicants will have an opportunity to be granted a $1,500 academic scholarship. The foundation committee will select a winner by the end of December every year and there will only be one winner who will receive this amount towards their higher education expenses in each year.
