The FWAA is now accepting applications for the 25th annual Volney Meece Scholarship.
For an application please email Dave Sittler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications must be received by Dec. 15, 2021.
The scholarship is awarded annually by the FWAA and named for the late Volney Meece, who served 22 years as the FWAA’s Executive Director and was the organization’s President in 1971.
The $1,000 annual grant for four years is awarded to a deserving son or daughter of an FWAA member. High school seniors and current college students are eligible. Since the program started in 1997, the FWAA has distributed more than $90,000 in scholarship money to deserving children of FWAA members.
The winner will be announced in January.
