The WPCA Scholarship Program combines two vital pieces of our organization - educational outreach and supporting the next generation within our member community.

Thanks to our generous donors and the expansion of our Educational Outreach program, this year we are excited to offer three (3) one thousand-dollar scholarships to qualified students.

The application deadline is May 2nd, 2024
. We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity and look forward to announcing our scholarship recipients at the WPCA Technical Symposium on May 16, 2024.


Each applicant is only eligible to win one scholarship per year. 

Congratulations, 2023-2024 Scholarship Winners!
