Annual WCACC Scholarship
The West Chester Area
Community Chorus (WCACC) is an all volunteer organization providing musical enjoyment to its members and the community for over 17 years and we currently have over 130 members. We are grateful to have been provided practice facilities and support from the West Chester Area School District. We believe that we
serve the community and therefore have attempted to become involved in the West Chester community and the public schools.
In 2008 the chorus established an annual scholarship program open to all seniors in the West Chester Area School District public schools in an attempt
to give back to the community
of which we are a part.
This is a one year, $500 scholarship awarded to a graduating senior who will attend college next fall to study vocal or choral music. However, because of the generosity of an anonymous donor, the scholarship in some year’s has been $1,000. The award is decided by a committee of members of the chorus and is based on the students responses to the questions included in the application. Grammar, spelling and presentation are considered in addition to the answers to the questions. There is the possibility that the committee may decide to personally interview the finalists.
All applications and supporting materials must be postmarked no later than April 1, 2015. If the application is not complete or if any supporting documentation is missing, the student may be disqualified. The award is announced
each year in late April. It is expected that the winner will attend the WCACC spring concert on Saturday, May 9, 2015, to publicly receive the award and may be invited to perform a selection at the concert.
