The Zula B. Wylie Public Library is very proud to announce that Waste Management is sponsoring two (2) $1,500 scholarships available to 2020 high school graduates with a minimum GPA of 2.5 who want to further their education, whether it is at a university, junior college or trade school. The graduates must attend Cedar Hill ISD and/or be a resident of the City of Cedar Hill. The scholarship is coordinated by the Zula B. Wylie Public Library and award recipients will be invited to a Cedar Hill City Council meeting in June to be presented with the scholarship.
The 2020 Application for the Waste Management Scholarship has been revised to no longer require a copy of the student’s transcript or letters of recommendation. Application deadline has been extended until April 30th. The essay must be submitted with the application.
The deadline for submission is Thursday, April 30, 2020 by 5:00 p.m. Applications must be in an envelope and dropped into the Video Drop at the Zula B. Wylie Public LIbrary, 225 Cedar St.
