If you are an active WWLOA Junior Official and High School senior, or if you are an active WWLOA Adult Official and student enrolled in a college or technical/trade school program, we’d like to offer you the opportunity to add $750 to your education fund.
In the Spring of 2023, the Washington Women’s Lacrosse Officials Association allocated funding for up to two $750 scholarships. To qualify for this scholarship, you must be a current WWLOA official and either A) be a High School senior planning to enroll in continuing education next year, or B) be an existing student in a college or technical/trade school program.
WWLOA is seeking to find individuals who have been positively impacted by their years officiating girls’ lacrosse.
This scholarship is to be used for tuition or school-related fees only. For High School seniors, the scholarship will be applied to fees incurred in your upcoming term within the academic year following HS graduation. For adults currently enrolled in a college or technical school, the scholarship will be applied to fees incurred in the term immediately following the scholarship award announcement.
We ask that you demonstrate how officiating with WWLOA helped you overcome a challenge and/or positively impacted you in other areas of your life -- academically or professionally. Please tell us more about your current or future school choice and relate how this scholarship would benefit your educational/career path. The application form link is below.
Your application will be reviewed by a committee of WWLOA board members and staff. If the WWLOA board requires zoom interviews, they may do so at their discretion. The candidate(s) selected for the scholarship will be notified in June. Award recipients must be willing to share their name and excerpts of their application with the WWLOA community, as well as on the WWLOA website.
**the link to apply for this scholarship for the 2024 season will be activated soon! Watch for details via emails and on our home page blog!
