This year, WA MESA is excited to offer students two scholarship opportunities, The Boeing Scholarship and The Weyerhaeuser Scholarship.

Scholarship recipients may receive up to $2500 from The Boeing Scholarship and up to $2500 from The Weyerhaeuser Scholarship. It is possible for an applicant to receive both scholarships offered. The dollar amount(s) awarded will depend on the number of scholarship recipients.

WA MESA students can apply by completing the scholarship application form. We ask that each person submits only one application, which will make them eligible for both awards.

Washington MESA Scholarship Application is active from April 23, 2021 to June 18, 2021. It is highly recommended that you write or type your short answers on a separate document, check spelling, then copy and paste responses to questions within the online scholarship application. Once you submit your application form, it will be recorded.

You also have the option to turn in a paper application instead of an online application. Your MESA Director or Teacher can provide you with a paper application. Once completed, scan and send the application via email to the Washington MESA Scholarship Committee at wamesa@uw.edu. If you do not have a scanner, please reach out to your MESA Director or staff to discuss submission alternatives.
