Scholarship FAQs

Do I need to submit my transcripts?

I missed the deadline, can I submit late?

Most times, no. We will consider requests for extensions on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Daniel Galbreath (

When will I receive notification?

In general, you should receive notification by the end of April. 

How will I receive the money?

The scholarship is made payable directly to the educational institution, to be applied toward the student’s tuition and fees.

Will you contact my parents with award information?

You (the applicant) should be the principle point of contact with WYCF, not your parent. We always contact the student before contacting parents, and we expect the student to follow through with any additional information needed.

I didn't receive and award or decline letter?

First, please make sure the contact information you give is current and that you are able to receive mail at that address.

If you have confirmed that this information is correct, please contact Daniel Galbreath (


What is proof of enrollment?

Proof of enrollment is any document that clearly shows (1) your name, (2) the university or college’s name, and (3) a clear indication of your UPCOMING studies. While we can accept a wide range of options for this requirement, if the document is missing any of these three elements, we cannot accept. it. You’ll need to submit it when you confirm acceptance of your scholarship. 

Proof of enrollment might be a transcript for the upcoming term, or some kind of indication that you’ve made payment to your university. If you’re unsure or need help deciding what to submit, email Daniel Galbreath (

Can my scholarship be combined with other scholarships?

WYCF policy does not prohibit you from receiving multiple scholarships. However, every institution has its own policy on this matter. You should consult your institution’s financial aid office for more information.
