Caleb Schopen, 2021 winner of the WPCA Phil Pellitteri Scholarship
WPCA awards two annual scholarships, each in the amount of $500, to deserving students. The scholarships are presented annually in the fall to two students who will be attending an accredited college, university, trade school, or institute of higher learning.
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 for over 30 years and often served as a valued resource and speaker at WPCA educational seminars.
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 or spouses of WPCA members — including employees of member companies — and are open to qualified nominees with a minimum 2.5 GPA. Nominations, applications, and a 500-word essay must be submitted by April 30th.
