WEAC – Region 2

2024 WEAC Region 2 Scholarship

WEAC Region 2 will grant scholarships to two high school seniors, who are the children of WEAC Region 2 members and are planning to continue their education after graduation by attending a University or Technical College program.  Scholarship recipients will each be awarded $500.00 to be used for the recipients’ fees, tuition, or related expenses.  There are no restrictions regarding an applicant’s income level, additional scholarships they may have been awarded, or their course of study.

High school seniors, graduating from a Wisconsin public high school, are eligible if their parent(s) or legal guardian qualifies in one of the following membership categories:

  • Active member of WEAC Region 2
  • Active retired member who retired from a current WEAC Region 2 local
  • A parent who died while holding an active membership with a current WEAC Region 2 local.

A student must rank in the top 25% of his/her class or have achieved a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (based on a non-weighted 4.0 scale) at the time of application.  (All A’s = 4 points; B’s = 3 points; C’s = 2 points; D’s = 1 point; F’s = 0 points)

Scholarship recipients will be notified in mid-April, and the scholarships will be presented at the WEAC Region 2 Representative Assembly in May.

The 2024 scholarship application has been updated.

Notable changes:

  • Only word-processed applications will be accepted this year.
  • There is no longer a designated space for the essay. The essay portion is still a requirement, as listed on page B-2, #4, however it should be included as a requested attachment like the two letters of recommendation and current transcript.
  • The text boxes on the application are locked to maintain the application’s layout, additional pages of attached response sheets will not be considered.

Deadline for completed applications to be RECEIVED in the WEAC Region 2 office: 3:00 P.M. ON FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2024
