Every year the Western Chapter’s student committee awards 3 students with a scholarship to help with the conference registration. The committee’s goal with the scholarship is to expose students interested in the industry and give them the opportunity to network with professionals.
Scholarship Information: Students are invited to apply for a scholarship to the 2020 Annual WCISA Conference & Trade Show Reach your Highest Peak at the Resort at Squaw Valley in Olympic Valley, CA on November 9 -12, 2020. The $300 scholarship will cover conference registration which includes 3 days of educational programming, access to the exhibit hall featuring top tree care companies, and a special student/mentor gathering. Each scholarship winner will be required to serve as a volunteer at the conference. Students are also encouraged to visit and network with the exhibitors and members. To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be enrolled in a 2- or 4- year college (not high school) working towards a degree in a field related to Arboriculture.
The student must provide proof of student status before the scholarship can be awarded.
Online Student Scholarship Application. Application Deadline October 15, 2020.
