The Robert J. Handy & WSSR-Foundation

The Washington State School Retirees' Association (WSSRA) invites high school seniors who have a GPA of 3.0 or higher to apply for the Robert J. Handy and WSSR Foundation scholarships.  These awards are given to students who plan to have a career in the “field of education”.

Eight (8) WSSR – Foundation Scholarships and sixteen (16) Robert J. Handy Scholarships will be awarded to students whose degree would be in one of these areas: teacher, counselor, speech therapist, occupational therapist, or psychologist.

WSSRA conducts the search and review process and selects the recipients.  Applicants will be notified by May 8, 2020, if they have been chosen. 

The scholarship application must be filled-out online, printed and mailed to the WSSRA District Representative. The District Representative’s name and address will be displayed once you have entered the zip code where requested for your high school.
