ROBERT MOREMAN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION GUIDELINES

Deadline April 15th of Graduating Year

The Robert Moreman Memorial Scholarship (RMMS) is available to graduating seniors from Wimberley High School (WHS) and Katherine Anne Porter School (KAPS) in Wimberley, Texas. The goal is to fund at least two single-year scholarships annually, with an option for more depending on available funds.

Scholarships of $5,000+ will be awarded to students seeking higher education in colleges, universities or after high school technical or trade schools. While academic performance (grades) will be considered during the selection process, they will not be the primary criterion when selecting the scholarship recipients.

Students applying for this scholarship need to show how their continuing education will support one or more of Wimberley Valley Arts and Cultural Alliance (WVACA)’s artistic pillars: visual, performing, literary and culinary arts, or how they are dedicated to becoming tradesmen: crafters, builders or makers.
