The WAEPA College Scholarship Program

WAEPA has established a scholarship program exclusively for policy holders’ children who attend college or vocational school programs.  Annual scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 are offered each year to support full-time study at an accredited institution. This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship Management Services, a department of Scholarship America. Scholarship America is a national nonprofit educational support and student aid service organization that seeks to involve and assist the private sector in expanding educational opportunities and encouraging educational achievement.

Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, disability, or national origin.
