Each year the WBA Retail Section awards five $1,000 scholarships to Wisconsin high school seniors who will be furthering their education at a Wisconsin state accredited college, university or state-operated technical school. Five awards of $1,000 each were given to qualified applicants in the following categories: academic achievement; financial need; a student who has a career goal in the financial services industry; a student who will attend a technical college to obtain an associate degree; and the Retail Section Committee Award.

The scholarships are only awarded to an employee, or the child of an employee, at an in-state location of a WBA Retail Banking Section member institution. 

Congratulations scholarship recipients! | Good luck in your future endeavors!
