Prizes & scholarships

Every year, we celebrate the achievements of WAAPA’s most outstanding students through the presentation of scholarships and prizes. These awards are only possible through the generosity of private donors, the business sector, members of the public, past staff, alumni and various foundations.

Scholarships

Paulette Carson Scholarship

To apply and for more information, please visit the ECU Scholarships web pages.
