About The McKenzie Scholarship
Mac McKenzie was a member of our Puget Sound Chapter for many years. Mac served as chapter secretary many times and in 1988 had just accepted the position again when it was discovered he had cancer. Our dear friend passed away early in 1989.

In April of 1989, President Jim Hamilton presented a scholarship program to the board in honor of Mac McKenzie. The program was designed and adopted for use as a continuing education program for members.

In 1991, funds were allocated and the scholarship was placed in effect. The scholarship is open to members wishing to further their education. There are six (6) $750 education scholarships available each academic year, running from September through August.

About The Pete Peterson Scholarship
The purpose of the Scholarship Fund will be to assist WSSHE Full Members to be able to attend conferences and educational meetings that they might not be able to due to financial restrictions.

At the beginning of the year the Chapter Board shall meet and decide the amount of the funds, the number of awards to be given, and the individual amount of each award. The Board will then make the announcement of the chapter membership of the funding that will be available and the procedures for applying.

Priority of Awarding the Scholarship:
1. Awards shall be given on a first come first served basis

2. The PPSF Board will set the guidelines for the due dates of applications and the awarding criteria. Full members can use the enclosed application form to submit their requests.

3. The PPSF Board will approve/disapprove all requests at the regular PPSF Board meeting following the receipt of the requests.
