The WT Foundation provides scholarships to students seeking engineering degrees and donates to cancer research in honor of Scott Triphahn
Scholarships are given each year in the amount of $1,500 to a graduating senior pursuing a college degree in engineering from the District 211 High Schools of James B. Conant, Schaumburg, or Hoffman Estates. Interested students can contact their College and Career Counselor for information.
Beginning in 2015, The WT Foundation will also be granting a $1,500 scholarship to a child of a WT Group family of Companies employee. For information on this scholarship opportunity, email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Established to promote scholarship and research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the WT Foundation provides an annual grant of $1,500 to a graduating senior from District 211 high schools in Schaumburg or Hoffman Estates. Additionally, in 2015 the WT Foundation established a parallel program granting an annual $1,500 scholarship to a child of the WT Group company.
The award check will be made payable to the scholarship recipient and the school they select. Students will be responsible for informing their College and Career Counselor of the school they plan to attend.
As needed, we will fund raise by personal solicitations. Endorsing what this foundation stands for and funding will be our purpose. We may also apply for grants through other foundations, where funds are available to us.
The primary fund-raiser is the WT Group’s Annual “Nine Wine & Stein” golf outing and benefit. Held each Summer at the Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club in Hoffman Estates, this fun event attracts civic-minded participants for an afternoon of golf, wine tasting and fellowship.
