Heckert Family Scholarship Award


Through the generosity of Ralph Heckert ’74, Sr. Vice President, with the support of his company Capital Guardian Trust, the WHFAA offers annual college scholarship opportunities to graduating student athletes of West Haven High School, who will be attending four year colleges.

Through the WHHS Guidance office, Student athletes complete an application which is reviewed by the WHFAA Scholarship Committee. The student athlete applications are evaluated based on a written essay, academic and athletic achievement, financial need, citizenship and community involvement. The Scholarship awards are presented at the Annual West Haven Chamber of Commerce & Heckert Family Scholarship Luncheon each June, and payable following the successful completion of their first college semester.
