WGAZ is proud to offer scholarships ever year. These scholarships go to students attending an institution of higher education who also exhibit passion for the sport of the arts as well as commitment and dedication to whatever they pursue. Applicants are asked to submit an application, two letters of recommendation, transcripts, a video and an essay detailing the impact WGAZ has had on their personal lives as well as explaining their potential use and or need for the scholarship.

The WGAZ scholarship committee reviewed a number of very strong applicants for this year’s scholarship program. It was very rewarding and exciting to read through their essays. WGAZ is truly lucky to have such talented and intelligent members as a part of its organization and every one of these students is a great asset to this activity.
