The Keelty Honor Scholarship, endowed in 1981 by Joseph S. Keelty '44, recognizes superior achievement in the areas of academics, extracurricular activities and service to others. Recipients must display exemplary traits of character; preference in awarding this scholarship will be given to students from the Baltimore area who would be financially unable to attend Washington and Lee without such assistance. The Keelty Honor Scholarship is a full tuition award that is renewable for four years of undergraduate study, assuming satisfactory personal performance and attainment of a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.3.
To be considered for the Keelty Scholarship - or any merit-based awards - students must fill out and submit the Johnson Scholarship application, along with a complete application for admission no later than December 1, 2012. Only students from the Baltimore area will be considered for this award.
Finalists who are being considered for the Keelty Scholarship will be notified of their finalist status in late January, and will participate in a personal interview, conducted by Baltimore area alumni and a representative from the W & L Office of Admissions, in March. Winners will be notified by the end of March.
