About the Scholarship Program

The WMA annually solicits our members for funding of the scholarship program, then match the funds underwritten by the membership with exceptional students who are pursuing certification and/or degrees in manufacturing-related disciplines. The scholarship awards are typically for $1,000 each and are paid directly to the school for application toward tuition and/or education-related expense. The number of scholarships given out each year is determined by our board and member donations.

In 2021, the WMA provided 21 scholarships that were generously funded by the following companies and organizations. If your company or organization is interested in sponsoring a scholarship, please contact Scholarship Chair John Trowbridge at (316) 291-4068.
