Paying for College Just Got a Little Easier
Washington Bankers Association (WBA) created the WBA Scholarship Program to assist children of full-time employees of WBA’s member institutions in pursuing their college education.

Other Financial Aid
It is the responsibility of the applicant to notify the WBA scholarship committee of other financial aid that has been awarded to the applicant. The WBA scholarship plus any financial aid received by the student will not exceed the total of tuition, books, fees, room, and board.
Selection Criteria and Process
It is WBA’s desire to not only assist students and their families financially, but also to take an active role in developing tomorrow’s leaders. Therefore, selection will be based on a student’s academic achievement, extracurricular activities, and community service.
WBA will select scholarship recipients on an objective and nondiscriminatory basis. WBA will not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or religion. WBA may, however, take into account criteria reasonably related to the purposes of the WBA scholarship program. Scholarship recipients will be announced at the WBA annual convention.
Scholarship recipients may be asked to participate in a photo shoot. After recipients are announced, they will notify the WBA Scholarship Committee of the educational institution they will be attending. Scholarship checks will be sent directly to each recipient’s college or university.
Application packets will be due June 9.
