Despite the cancellation of our events in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, WGI is steadfast in commitment to young people whatever the challenge. A core value of our organization is the WGI Scholarship Program that has provided tuition assistance to hundreds of deserving students over 43 years of championship events.
Approaching $1,000,000 in scholarships awarded, WGI will award $35,000 earmarked for the 2020 World Championships as planned. Announcements of these scholarships will be featured during the “I AM WGI” virtual celebration on April 4.
“Our scholarship program is and always will be a cornerstone of WGI to encourage and reward scholastic achievement ,” said CEO Ron Nankervis. “Thousands of students reach their potential on the floor, but WGI can also help realize goals in their education as well.”
Support for these scholarships comes from generous contributions from personal and corporate donations as well as funds designated each year within WGI’s annual budget.
