Fellowship word image


1. friendly association; especially with people who share one's interest
2. the status of a fellow of a college or society

WSPA is proud to announce the Randy Hathaway Fellowship application process is now open.  

If you have been contemplating going back to school to increase your knowledge and skills in the Human Resource arena, please consider applying for a Randy Hathaway Fellowship. 

In order to apply, you must be a current WSPA member and have had a minimum of one year's membership with WSPA within the last five years.  For districts with a District Membership, this includes all HR staff members- not just those identified as part of your district membership.  You may apply for both fellowships, however only one will be awarded per person, per year.

Applications are due no later than January 15, 2021.
