To commemorate our 60th anniversary in 2019, the Washington Township United Fund began awarding two annual scholarships for Washington Community High School (WCHS) graduating seniors: 

Academic Scholarship

The student must be enrolled (or planning to enroll) in an academic program at Illinois Central College (ICC) that will lead either to completion of an associate’s degree or to completion of the first two years of college in preparation for transferring to a four year institution. This scholarship may be used for college-related tuition, housing, transportation, and/or books and fees.

Vocational Scholarship

The Washington Township United Fund Vocational Scholarship is a one-time award of $1,500, given to a WCHS graduating senior in the top half of the graduating class whose academic performance in high school is a cumulative C average or higher. The student must be enrolled (or planning to enroll) in a vocational training program or apprenticeship located in Central Illinois (may be Illinois Central College). This scholarship may be used for college-related tuition, housing, transportation, and/or books and fees.
