2022-23 Welge Scholarship for College Juniors and Seniors from Blair County
Established in 1995 by Adelaide (Heverly) Welge’s niece and nephew-in-law to celebrate her commitment to higher education, the Welge (WELL-ghee) Scholarship Endowment Fund provides financial assistance to college juniors or seniors registered at a Blair County Catholic Parish (other than Saint Matthew Parish, which already has a substantial scholarship program).

For the first time in the history of the Welge Endowment, our selection committee will be able to grant four $500 awards this summer. Awards will be mailed to schools as a credit on each student’s account.

Welge Scholarship applicants are: (1) members of a Blair County Catholic Parish (excluding St. Matthew); (2) junior or senior undergraduate students enrolled at any accredited college or university; and, (3) in need of financial assistance. Please complete and return the application no later than 4:00 p.m., Wednesday, June 8, 2022.  We will announce scholarship winners on our Facebook page this summer!
