WPS Essay Scholarships
As part of its mission, the WPS established opportunities for perfusion students via an essay writing competition. These scholarships are open to any non-employed perfusion student enrolled in an accredited perfusion program within the United States. All scholarships are financed by the pairing of private and corporate donations and are awarded at the Annual Education Meeting.
