The WBA Education Committee, and the stations that utilize the scholarship menu option for EEO credit, will screen all scholarship applications. The final determinations for scholarships will be made by a vote of the WBA Foundation Board of Directors. The two highest ranked applicants by the WBA Foundation Board will receive the $2,500 scholarships and the next two highest ranked will receive $1,500 scholarships. The scholarships will be awarded at the WBA’s Student Seminar, Saturday, Feb. 24, 2023 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
