WESTBOROUGH – The Westborough Education Foundation has awarded its two WEF Scholarships to Westborough High graduates Brooke Oberlee and Gavin Grattan-Small.
Oberlee plans to attend the University of Massachusetts Amherst studying biomedical engineering, while Grattan-Small plans on attending Assumption University.
The scholarships were established for Westborough High School students who exhibit strong leadership qualities; are passionate about learning; and have demonstrated creativity and innovation. These scholarships are not solely based on academic achievement, but for students who go “above and beyond” and reflect the spirit and mission of WEF.
The Westborough Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to fostering excellence and innovation in Westborough Public Schools. WEF is dedicated to providing financial support for projects and programs that expand educational opportunities; foster and stimulate creativity; and enhance the excellence of academic experiences for Westborough students.
WEF also supports academic programs at all levels of education across many disciplines, including math, science, literacy, the arts, technology, history, and physical education. These grants allow teachers and administrators to develop and implement innovative programs that are not covered by the regular school budget.
Since its inception in 1997, WEF has awarded over $480,000 in grants that support programs that benefit students in all grades. For more information, visit www.westborougheducationfoundation.com.
