WAEA Membership Scholarship

The WAEA board is excited to offer a new “Mileage to Membership” Scholarship. Instead of taking mileage reimbursements when board members attend meetings, they can opt to donate their mileage into this new fund. These donations provide scholarships for potential members, for whom the $90 fee is a barrier to participation, but are eager to contribute to the WAEA, to receive a free year of WAEA membership. Scholarship awardees are expected to actively participate in the WAEA in some capacity during their free membership year. This could include attending a board meetings, presenting at the Fall conference, or writing an article for Splatter Magazine.

Before you apply, be sure you have looked into other resources for funding, such as your building or district professional development funds, PD grants, a school district foundation or even your school’s ASB. (If you are the sponsor of a National Art Honor Society club, often times your ASB will pay the NAEA Dues as part of the club fees.)
