Washington State Beekeepers Association
Keeping the Bee in Business
Please support our research and scholarship fund
Washington State Beekeepers Association maintains a research and scholarship fund in the memory of three distinguished Washington beekeepers: Roy Thurber, Carl VanWechel, and Alvina Timmons. This fund is supported by generous endowments from each of their families and from annual proceeds from our benefit auction and by contributions from our members and the public. We make annual scholarship grants to worthy students and researchers who are advancing the knowledge of apiary science. These funds are kept as a separate account used solely for such grants and contributions in any amount are greatly appreciated.
Scholarship funds support college level students and enhance opportunities to advance beekeeping knowledge.
