Scholarship Opportunities with WPPA

Great Scholarship Opportunities Available to WPPA Members! 

It’s not too late to apply for a WPPA Scholarship!

Each year WPPA awards scholarships to WPPA members who apply and qualify.  With so many changes revolutionizing the photo industry, educational courses are a wonderful opportunity to fine tune your professional goals and network with other professionals in the industry!  The three scholarships are as follows:  up to $250 Gerhard Bakker Scholarship, up to $250 Norm Swanson Scholarship, and up to $250 Ron Lemerond Scholarship, a cash stipend for a board approved course at the school of your choice.

You can send in your application by clicking on the Scholarship application link in the tool bar above!  Please note we’ve extended the application deadline to November 15, 2017!

These scholarships are to be used anytime throughout 2018.  Scholarships are open to all paid members in good standing with WPPA and who have attended the spring WPPA convention the previous two years.  This DOES include studio owners.  It’s a great opportunity and all members new and old should consider applying!  WPPA is here to support its members!
