PEMCO Emerging Leaders Scholarship

For a decade and a half, PEMCO Insurance has graciously partnered with AWSL to provide scholarships to emerging leaders from under-represented populations. These have included individuals from socio-economic, ethnic, sexual, racial and linguistic minorities, as well as informal and unrecognized leaders from schools across the state. The PEMCO Emerging Leaders Scholarship program has helped AWSL in its goal of reaching out to under-served communities in Washington state, and was instrumental in enabling us to bring energy and talent to the early years of our La Cima and Deaf Teen Leadership camps.

2017 Scholarships

In 2017, PEMCO is sponsoring 15 Emerging Leaders Scholarships. Each school may submit a single application each year for an emerging leader at their school. Applications can be found at our registration forms page, and are due March 20, 2017.
