            WWOA Southeast Region Tuition Aid Criteria



Due to projected staffing shortages in our field, The Southeast Region of the Wisconsin Wastewater Operator’s Association (WWOA) feels a tuition aid program may inspire more interest in wastewater related careers. Therefore, the Southeast Region would like to provide tuition aid in the amount of $500 to an individual that resides in the Southeast Region or is training for wastewater employment within the Southeast Region.
