WIESA Youth Scholarships For High School Seniors Whose Parents are Active Members of Wisconsin Police and Fire Departments

The Wisconsin Electronic Security Association (WIESA), is pleased to announce the availability of two college scholarships for graduating seniors whose parents are full-time, active members of a Wisconsin police or fire department. One $1,500 Youth Scholarship will be awarded to a son/daughter of an active-duty police department member and one to a son/daughter of an active-duty fire department member. Since 2010 WIESA has awarded $19,000 in scholarships.

A first place winner will be chosen from the Wisconsin Chartered Chapter’s two awardees and will be submitted to the national Electronic Security Association for competition for one of two national college scholarships. The first place national winner will receive $7,500 and the second place national winner receives $2,500.
