Scholarship Description: Each year, the NWTA sponsors four scholarships. The Clark Foster Scholarship is awarded to immediate family members of current dues-paying NWTA members. The NWTA Scholarship is awarded to a graduating NW senior and the NWTA Friend Scholarship is awarded to a student nominated by an NWTA.
These are OUR scholarships! If everyone were to donate $20 per year - just one dollar per paycheck - this fund would be amply endowed.
Please consider signing up the easy, painless way - through Payroll Deduction.

Like last year, we gave away four scholarships, but had to reduce the dollar amount for each due to our shrinking scholarship account. The Clark-Foster Scholarships were worth $1,000 each and the NWTA Scholarships were given at $500 each. A special thank you to everyone who contributed to the scholarship fund this year. Please contact a building rep if you would like to make a donation or sign-up for payroll deduction. With your help, we can continue offering these scholarships for future students!
