WJTA Announces New Student Scholarship Program

The WaterJet Technology Association is announcing a new program that will award scholarships to WJTA members or their spouses, dependents or grandchildren beginning in 2022. Four awards of $5,000 each will be awarded and may be applied towards study in any academic discipline.

Applications will be accepted beginning September 1, 2021, and applicants will be notified no later than May 15, 2022. Selection criteria include, but are not limited to scholastic achievement, community service/involvement and financial need.

The scholarships will draw from an educational fund first established by a donation by Fun-Den Wang, Ph.D., a founding member of WJTA and a recipient of WJTA’s Pioneer Award. Individuals or companies who would like more information on donating to WJTA’s scholarship program should contact Peter Wright at wrightp@wjta.org or 314-241-1445.

These scholarship awards are gifts to be applied toward the cost of tuition. They place no obligation on the recipients other than that they do the best possible work as students. In the spirit of such gifts that recipients are not obligated to repay any money to WJTA, but it is hoped that they, too, will help others to obtain an education when they become successful in the field of their choice.
