Apply Now for Baking and Pastry Arts Scholarships
If you are planning to pursue a career in Baking and Pastry Arts, consider applying for a scholarship. The Wisconsin Bakers Association (WBA) is proud to offer two scholarships for students entering Baking and Pastry Arts programs. Between the two awards, more than $30,000 has been given to students since our first scholarship program began in 1984.
The WBA has a national scholarship, the Robert W. Hiller Scholarship, available for students pursuing a degree in a baking/pastry arts-related field that prepares candidates for a retail baking profession. The WBA established the Robert W. Hiller Scholarship to support and encourage people who have demonstrated a passion for a profession in the baking/pastry arts field. A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to the applicant who can best demonstrate this career commitment.
In addition to the R.W. Hiller Scholarship, the WBA also offers the WBA Scholarship. This is a $1,000 scholarship given annually to Wisconsin students entering a baking/pastry arts program. Only Wisconsin residents are eligible to apply for the WBA Scholarship.
The WBA offers scholarships as a way to provide financial support for the education of students who will be the future of the Baking Industry. The Scholarship Committee will review completed applications postmarked or submitted online by Friday, December 1, 2017. There is still plenty of time to submit your scholarship application before the deadline! Both scholarship applications are available here: https://wibakers.wordpress.com/scholarships/ All scholarships given through the WBA are awarded without regard to age, sex, race, religion, marital status, national origin, handicap or sexual preference.
