The WASBO Scholarship Program was established in 1993, to assist WASBO members in furthering their education in the areas of school business management. Each year at the WASBO Annual Conference, members donate items to the Scholarship Raffle and Silent Auction. These proceeds are combined with donations from Partner and Vendor Sponsorship's and used to fund scholarships for WASBO members.The scholarship funds are managed by the Board of Directors to assure maximum results/benefits.
