Commonwealth Impact Program

The Commonwealth Impact Program is part of our ongoing commitment to partner with high schools to identify talented students who will thrive at William & Mary.

Through this exciting program, we invite school counselors, advisors, administrators and college access organization supporters to nominate up to 10 academically distinguished seniors for consideration to receive a William & Mary Scholars Award, which includes a full tuition and fees scholarship.

The best part? No additional student award application is needed from the student (beyond the Common App and financial aid applications).

William & Mary Leadership Award

Nominate a current junior (Class of 2025) from your high school who is a dynamic leader within your school community. This prestigious award is presented to one student at each high school in Virginia and select high schools across the United States. The nomination process will open on February 15.
