Student Affairs

The Student Affairs Committee is responsible for encouraging academic and social excellence, and developing and managing a financial assistance program for HWEA members and their dependents in their quest for higher education and professional development. The committee solicits, screens, and distributes scholarship applicants to the Board of Directors for ranking. The committee also coordinates a poster session of graduate student projects at the annual HWEA conference.

The goal of the Student Activities Committee is to encourage academic and social excellence, develop and manage a financial assistance program for HWEA members and their dependents in their quest for higher education and professional development.  To qualify for financial assistance, the applicant or dependent must have been a member of the association for a period established by the Board.  The current policy is to require that the applicant or dependent be an Association member from September 30 of the year before the year in which the scholarship is awarded.
