Do you know a child who needs financial help to participate in a summer enrichment program? Every year WATG offers summer scholarships to Wisconsin students who wish to expand their learning in an area of interest or passion. Students planning to attend summer camps and classes in a range of fields (e.g. music, engineering, and creative writing) are eligible to apply. Last year WATG distributed a total of $2,000 to seven worthy K-12 scholarship recipients.
To fund our scholarships, WATG uses investment income supplemented by proceeds from the silent auction and book and merchandise sale at our Fall Conference. WATG welcomes donations to this scholarship fund at any time. Contact our office here or by US Mail at: WATG Office, 1553 Smithfield Drive, Sun Prairie, WI 53590

In 2017, WATG will award a special scholarship to honor Olivia M. Dahl, daughter of former WATG Board Member Jennifer Dahl. Olivia was a bright, kind, adventurous young woman with a fierce drive to learn who lost her life in a plane crash in September, 2016. Because Olivia found great joy participating in WCATY summer camps, special preference for this scholarship will be given to students who plan to attend a WCATY program.
