WPCA is proud to announce that it is now awarding two annual scholarships, each in the amount of $500, to deserving students. One scholarship, The Phil Pellitteri Scholarship, is named in honor of Phil Pellitteri who retired in early 2014 from the Insect Diagnostic Lab at UW-Madison. Phil ran the lab better than 30 years and has often served as a valued resource and speaker at WPCA educational seminars. The second award, named The WPCA Leadership Scholarship, is so named because today’s college students will be tomorrow’s leaders — those who will make their communities and the world better places in which to live, work, and play.
Both scholarships are for children and spouses of WPCA members, and are open to qualified nominees with a minimum 2.5 GPA. Nominations, applications, and a 500-word essay for applicants must be submitted by April 30th.
The scholarships will be presented annually in the fall to two students who will be attending an accredited college, university, trade school, or institute of higher learning.
