The Wight Foundation seeks 7th grade students with high intellectual curiosity and academically competitive profiles. Our Scholar Training & Enrichment Program (STEP), an eleven-month preparatory program to ensure the success of our scholars, is part of our application process.

Completed applications are read as they are submitted to the Wight Foundation office; therefore it is to an applicant’s advantage to return his or her completed application before the deadline.

While our application process is comprehensive, those students who go on to become Wight Foundation Scholars receive support beyond their high school years.
