Scholarships for the National Convention

Deadline has passed and all scholarship recipients have been contacted. Thank you. 

We are excited to be able to provide scholarship awards to help families attend the convention this summer. 

We will be providing awards to both individuals and families at various levels (up to a maximum award of $1,750) to help offset convention expenses.

WSA scholarship awards are “needs based.”  They can be used to offset program fees, and, in the case of larger awards, reimburse additional expenses (upon receipt of paid invoices), such as hotel or travel.

Please be aware of the following details regarding your scholarship application:

  • Membership:  Scholarship applicants must be current members of the WSA.  Membership is complimentary, and you can join here.
  • Qualified first-time attendees receive preference for funding, however recipients of previous scholarships will be provided awards to the extent that we are able.
  • Tax Returns: Copies of the first two pages of your 2016 taxes. 
  • Documentation:  Any  “out of pocket” expenses referenced on your application require documentation.
  • Deadline:  March 15, 2018. The completed application, and all other requested documentation must be in our office by March 15. Please note, your application cannot be considered until your tax form is received and we cannot guarantee that funds will be available after April 4th (scholarship distribution date).
  • Award notifications:  will be sent by April 10, 2018.
  • Convention Registration: If applying for a scholarship, you will be contacted by the National Office with a registration code after we receive your scholarship application.  You must submit your Convention registration before April 1.
  • Hotel: We recommend reserving your hotel room as early as possible rather than waiting for your award notification (especially if you are a late applicant).  Rooms can be cancelled without penalty up to 60 days prior to the convention.
