WETA Scholarship Application Materials
Applicants must fully complete the application and submit two letters of recommendations and submit the packet by the deadline. The scholarships are a one-time $1,000 award per person. At least one scholarship is awarded every year.
WETA is proud to offer up to two (2) annual $1,000 scholarships for students attending a Post-Secondary Institution. These scholarships, the Harmon Memorial Scholarship, and the Brasch Memorial Scholarship, are offered in memory of two former WETA members who had a lasting impact on WETA and the employment and training field.
Dennis Harmon was a dedicated professional who spent most of his work life serving the needs of the poor and unemployed through the development, operation and management of education, employment and training programs in Wisconsin.
John Brasch was a founder of WETA and remained an active member until his death. He was deeply committed to working with the disadvantaged as a guidance counselor at North Central Technical College.
The Older Worker Network (OWN) also sponsors an annual scholarship in honor of Fred Lengfeld. Learn more about OWN and the Fred Lengfeld scholarship here.
