WACHA's Scholarships Now Open for PacPay Members
Each year, WACHA awards several scholarships to our members with a total value of $8,000. To qualify to win, all you need to do is submit a thoughtfully worded essay to WACHA on why you think attending TPI (The Payments Institute) would benefit you and your financial institution. WACHA will review the essays and select the top three essays from the PacPay membership which we feel best express the individuals' desires to learn.
With three prizes, the odds of winning are very good, but don't delay! Qualifying ends on April 15, 2020. The winners will be announced at the 2020 Annual PacPay Members Meeting April 30th. Good Luck!

Eligibility Terms: Essays are welcome from representatives of all PacPay-WACHA members. Applicants must submit an essay to WACHA via fax or mail by April 15th explaining how you will use this information to further your career in the payments industry. Each applicant must receive signed approval from a senior officer at their organization stating that the applicant is permitted to attend TPI and, if they should win, to accept the scholarship.
