WEA-Retired Dollars for Scholars Scholarship Opportunity


This year, WEA-Retired is offering up to eight $1,000 non-renewable scholarships for the purpose of assisting WEA members in enhancing skills in specific education areas and/or attaining a teaching certificate.

There are two ways to apply:

  • Request the 2-part application from the Scholarship Chair at barwentz@comcast.net. Please indicate whether you are a Certificated, ESP, or Student WEA (SWEA) member. In your email also include an address for where the application can be sent. Included with the application will be a cover sheet that everyone must complete.
  • Visit the Retired Educators page on the WEA website for the scholarship information. Print out the cover sheet, choose the instruction sheet for Certificated, ESP, or SWEA, and complete a narrative from the questions asked.

The completed cover sheet and application letter should be sent to:

WEA-Retired Scholarship Committee
51 SE Bayview Lane
Shelton, WA 98584

The scholarship application paperwork must be received by April 6, 2018. You will receive an email confirming that your application was received.

If you have applied before, but have not received a scholarship, you are eligible to apply again. This scholarship cannot be used to pay for classes already taken or for bills incurred because you are taking classes (ie: gas money, credit cards, etc.).

Recipients of the scholarships will be notified by May 4, 2018, by the Scholarship Chair.
