Scholarship

NWAPA and its members are dedicated to supporting future journalists (automotive or otherwise) and are proud to offer a scholarship program to four journalism students from northwest universities each year.

Totaling $1,000 per recipient, NWAPA presents a scholarship to one student currently enrolled at each one of the following universities:

  • Washington State University, in Pullman, Washington
  •  University of Washington, in Seattle, Washington
  •  University of Oregon, in Eugene, Oregon
  •  Portland State University, in Portland, Oregon

Scholarship funds are in part raised through NWAPA’s annual Mudfest event.
Mudfest is an annual event for NWAPA members created to evaluate the latest sport utility vehicles. See Mudfest for more information and a list of past winners.
