Alumnae Scholarships

The Incarnate Word High School Alumnae Advisory Board is a volunteer organization that provides scholarship funds to students who are enrolled at Incarnate Word High School. The Alumnae Association established the scholarship fund in 1989 and continues to fund the scholarships with financial support received from the Alumnae Raffle and direct donations to the Alumnae Scholarship Fund.

The Alumnae Board receives numerous applications per year. The total awards change yearly depending on applications received and funds available. Recipients are selected on the basis of financial need, academic record, teacher recommendation and parental/student involvement in IWHS alumnae activities.

The Incarnate Word High School Alumnae Scholarship(s) are awarded by the IWHS Alumnae Advisory Board on the recommendation of the Scholarship Committee. The Scholarship Committee may choose to interview one or more candidates and reserves the right to recommend that no award be made if there are no applicants of sufficient merit. In the event two candidates are equally qualified for a scholarship, the Scholarship Committee may seek the advice of the IWHS administration in reaching a decision.

The scholarship will be applicable for a maximum period of one year. A successful applicant who is in her freshman, sophomore or junior year may reapply for the scholarship each year. The Alumnae Association gives preference to daughters of alumnae and to returning successful applicants.

If any candidate declines a scholarship, or does not sign the Scholarship Agreement Form, the IWHS Alumnae Advisory Board, on the recommendation of the Scholarship Committee, may offer the scholarship to another applicant. A scholarship must be utilized in the year for which it is offered.
