Are you a student who is studying, or interested in studying, woodworking in college? WMIA is here to help. Every year, we give out scholarships to college students who want to study wood technology, machinery, and related fields. To date, the WMIA Education Foundation has awarded over $525,000 to 280 students. There are no restrictions based upon the employment status or the sex, race, creed, or nationality of the candidate. Previous winners are eligible for a second award.
Any student or college-bound individual who is planning to enroll, or is currently enrolled, in a wood science or wood technology program is eligible to apply. Scholarship candidates must have graduated from high school or its equivalent before July 1 of the year in which they will use the scholarship. They must have sufficient academic records to be accepted by an accredited college, junior college, or technical institute. Students already in college are also eligible to apply. The scholarship is to be used for the fall semester; it cannot be used for past expenses. If you will have finished school before the fall semester, you are not eligible.
