Student-Athlete Scholarships

In addition to sponsoring county championship events, the WCCA membership feels that it is important to recognize the outstanding scholastic achievement of our scholar-athletes. In the past the WCCA has been able to provide scholarships of $1,000 or more.  The award is open to both male and female athletes with an emphasis on need, scholastic achievement, student participation in school activities, and to a degree, community involvement.


The Student-Athlete Scholarship for the 2023-2024 school year handouts below contain information, an application form, and a checklist for applying for the scholar-athlete awards presented annually by the Westmoreland County Coaches Association.  The due date for submission is May 1 of the current school year.
