FWEDA Matching Fund Scholarship Program

FWEDA is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of matching fund scholarships to assist in the training of employees or potential employees of Far West’s farm equipment dealers.

This is a “dealer-driven” scholarship process. The dealer must approve the applicant as a potential future employee, approve the applicant’s course of study as being relevant to dealership operations, and agree to match the $500 scholarship awarded by FWEDA. Applicants must be accepted and enrolled as a full-time student into a dealer-approved higher education curriculum.

Applications for scholarships to be awarded for the 2016-2017 school year must be received in the association office by April 27, 2016. All requested documentation must be included in order to be considered. Scholarship recipients will be selected by random drawing in the event that applications outnumber available scholarships.

If scholarship funds are remaining after April 30, 2016, additional scholarship applications will be accepted. However, no scholarship funds for the 2016-2017 school year will be disbursed after October 1, 2016. One applicant per paid FWEDA member will be considered unless funding allows for additional applicants from a dealership.

Do not send money with this application. When your scholarship has been approved, you will receive an invoice and instructions for submitting your $500 portion of the scholarship.

If you have questions after reviewing these materials, please contact the association office at (707) 678-8859 or fweda@fweda.com. Thank you for your interest in the FWEDA Matching Fund Scholarship Program!
