Step #1: Visit www.wlcsd.org/parents/scholarships/legacy-scholarship-fund/current-scholarships/ to view the PDF versions of each scholarship. Verify that you are choosing a scholarship that pertains to your high school (WLC, WLN, WLW or a combined high school scholarship). **The Generic Application used in the past has been added to each individual scholarship.**

Click on the PDF version under each scholarship name to view the application questions. It is highly suggested that you print a copy of the PDF version of the application to use for draft purposes.
