Each year at the WASBO annual conference members donate items to the Scholarship raffle. The proceeds from the raffle are used to fund scholarships for WASBO members. Thank you to everyone that has helped raise money for the scholarship fund! Scholarships are awarded based on need, WASBO involvement and prior WASBO trainings participation. Depending on the number of scholarship applications, full or partial scholarships may be awarded. Members can receive only one scholarship per year. The deadline for scholarship applications for the Annual Conference is February 28th.
History of the Scholarship Program
The WASBO Scholarship Program was established in 1993, to assist WASBO members in furthering their education or that of others in the areas of school business management. Through the generosity of members and allied personnel, these funds are managed by the Board of Directors to assure maximum results/benefits.
Scholarships are granted for:
