Wolmer’s Alumni Association South Florida Chapter (hereafter referred to as “the Association”) has awarded scholarships to students attending Wolmer’s High Schools and past students of Wolmer’s Schools attending tertiary institutions.

The awards for students at Wolmer’s High Schools cover tuition. For students attending tertiary institutions, the awards cover books and other discretionary expenses. The guidelines outlined in this document are intended to streamline the process and increase the accountability of the schools and the recipients.
