WCA Teacher Financial Assistance Application

The WCA EDUcation Committee has a limited amount of funds available for teacher travel to WCA Skill Evaluator trainings and/or industry trade shows: IWF Atlanta in even-numbered years; AWFS, Las Vegas in odd-numbered years. Teachers may apply for assistance with travel and hotel (award amount is subject to your proximity to the locations) or for help to pay for a group of student WCA memberships. To apply for funding, please complete and submit the form below. The committee reviews applications on a regular basis and will respond within 4-6 weeks. You may apply anytime throughout the year.

Important Note: Teachers applying for trade show travel assistance will be expected to submit a one page report summarizing the activities they participated in at the trade show, knowledge they gained from the experience, and how it will be applied to their teaching, within 30 days of the event, to: scholarships@woodworkcareer.org. Service hours at the WCA booth may also be required. Funding will not be dispensed until this report is received.
