Meet Our WMAA Scholars!
Since 2017 we have given over $36,000 in scholarships to Woodrow Wilson High School seniors and alumni pursuing higher education. Past scholars have shared how these direct scholarships have helped them purchase their first laptop, course books, and warm meals. We are so proud of all their accomplishments thus far and will continue supporting in any way possible.

Being awarded the WMAA scholarship has been an honor nevertheless an opportunity. I am grateful and thankful for the Wilson Alumni Association members and sponsors. I strongly believe that what they do is truly amazing, offering students like me a chance to further their education. I am also proud to say that I am also part of the Wilson Alumni organization. This scholarship has awarded me the extra money I needed to attend Cal State LA. But most importantly, I have shown my parents what I am capable of achieving. Thank you Wilson Alumni Association!

This scholarship has a lot of meaning towards me. Due to this scholarship, I can now purchase a laptop for college.
