WAEPA Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: February 4, 2020 3:00 pm CT

The WAEPA Scholarship Program was established to provide support for college or vocational-technical school programs to children of WAEPA members. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and tuition reimbursement programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.

Applicants to the WAEPA Scholarship Program must be:

  • Children of WAEPA members who are under the age of 23.
  • High school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.
  • Maintaining a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent).

WAEPA Members and Associate Members are not eligible to apply.

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award of $2,500 or $1,250. Awards will be granted as follows:

  • Up to seventy (70) awards of $2,500 will be granted to students attending four-year colleges or universities.
  • Up to five (5) awards of $1,250 will be granted to students attending two-year colleges or vocational-technical schools.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Awards are not renewable; however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Students may receive the award up to a maximum of four years.

Recipients are eligible to re-apply after receiving the award.

Notification

Applicants will be notified in April.

Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of WAEPA. Payment is made early August. Checks are mailed to each recipient’s home address and are made payable to the school for the student.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Consideration of academic performance,
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities,
  • Honors
  • Work experience,
  • Statement of goals and aspirations
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • Outside appraisal

Financial need will not be considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer, employee, or policy holder of WAEPA play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
