TO INSPIRE SUCCESS
The WMA Scholarship program was approved and adopted in 1962 at the Cleveland Convention and has expanded through the generosity of donors and investment interests. Awarded scholarships can range from $500 to $5000 and varies based on the number of applicants and funds available. The goal is to support qualified applicants with the opportunity to attend an accredited college, university, or college-level trade school to pursue career aspirations and eliminate financial barriers to achieving success.
There are 9 current WMA scholarships and applicants must satisfy defined criteria, complete the application within the appropriate time frame (February 1 through March 31) to be considered. The WMA Scholarship committee will review submissions to select final candidates to be awarded funding.
I appreciate the opportunity for this scholarship! The monies have significantly reduced my cost of tuition, which has allowed me to focus my energy into professionally developing myself and towards my coursework. I have also been able to take on more philanthropic pursuits allowing me to give back to my college campus and greater community.Student at Wayne State University, Detroit, MI
