Rochester Area Scholarship

Established in 1983, the scholarship was initially funded by a grant from the Davenport-Hatch Foundation of Rochester, NY, to enable Rochester area students with strong academic credentials to attend Wittenberg University.

Recipients are selected by a cooperative effort with the Rochester Alumni Scholarship Committee and Wittenberg’s Office of Admission. Awarded to incoming freshmen, the scholarship is for $14,000, or $3,500 per year for 4 years.

In order to be eligible for this scholarship, students must:

  • Reside in Rochester, NY (specifically, zip codes beginning with 144-, 145- and 146-).
  • Apply to Wittenberg by February 15
  • Submit the Rochester Area Scholarship Application by February 15

The selection committee will give preference to students who rank in the top 15% of their graduating class, but will consider all applications and will review transcripts, recommendation letters, extracurricular activities and leadership experiences.
