WMIA Educational Foundation Makes Scholarships Available for 2017

Are you a student who is studying, or interested in studying, woodworking in college?

The WMIA Educational Foundation is here to help. Each year, we award scholarships to college students and high school seniors who want to study wood technology, machinery, and related fields. To date, the Foundation has awarded nearly $350,000 in support.

Applications for the 2017 scholarship program are now invited. The Foundation provides scholarships for talented and worthy students seeking careers in wood technology, machinery, and related fields.

Any current college student or college-bound individual is eligible to apply. The scholarship is to be used for the fall semester; it cannot be used for past expenses. If you will have finished school before the fall semester, you are not eligible. Scholarship candidates must have graduated from high school or its equivalent before July 1 of the year in which they will use the scholarship. They must have sufficient academic records to be accepted by an accredited college, junior college, or technical institute.

Applications are due February 3, 2017. For more information, visit www.wmia.org/scholarships-2/, or download an application form.
