How to Apply: Individuals

Students must complete an application form to be considered for a scholarship or loan. Supplemental information in the form of attachments also is required. Fewer attachments are needed from applicants whom the Foundation previously has funded. All application materials must arrive at the Foundation no later than May 30.

Recommendations: Two letters of recommendation are required from individuals who know the applicant well. One letter must be from a current teacher, guidance counselor, principal, head of school, or dean. Applicants whom the Foundation previously has funded are required to attach a single letter of recommendation from a professor.

Scholastic achievement: All applicants must attach a transcript of courses and grades to date. College entry-level applicants need to include their SAT scores.

Applications must be received by May 30 to be considered. Send applications to:

Nettie Lokey Wiley and Charles L. Wiley Foundation
Post Office Box 126
Irvington, VA 22480

Please Note: If you are a Lancaster High School or Northumberland High School senior, you may apply to the Wiley Foundation by completing your school’s Common Scholarship Application. Please see your guidance counselor for more information.

The board will notify applicants of its decision by the end of July.

Make sure the application is complete and includes all required attachments. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
