WEAC-Wisconsin Education Association Council

  • Description:

    The deadline for applying for the four WEAC Scholarships is February 1 every year. Scholarship winners will receive grants of $1,450 per year for four years of college or university study, if they remain eligible. Only high school seniors are eligible to apply, and only if a parent qualifies in one of these membership categories: an active WEAC member, an active retired member, or a parent who died while holding a WEAC membership. In addition, the student must rank in the top 25% of his or 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, plan to pursue an education major or minor, and intend to teach in Wisconsin. The WEAC Scholarship was established to encourage children of WEAC members to enter the education field. Winners are chosen by a selection committee composed of five active members of WEAC affiliates, appointed by the president with the concurrence of the WEAC Board of Directors. The committee gives first priority consideration to four criteria: grade point average; an essay, not to exceed 300 words, written by the applicant; letters of recommendation; and school and community activities. The selection committee may consider other criteria, including financial need. Each year, one of the four scholarships is designated the Kathy Mann Memorial Scholarship and is awarded to a minority student. If no minority student applies or meets the criteria, a fourth WEAC scholarship is awarded instead.
