Since launching the Equipment Service Association Scholarships Foundation in 1994 – a 501(c)3 charitable foundation – the program has awarded over $50,000 in scholarships to help support the continuing education of our communities. Each year at the ESA annual convention, three scholarships are awarded to qualified members, member’s families, employees and employees’ families who meet the scholarship application criteria. Winners are selected in an open drawing and applicants need not be present to win.

The ESA Scholarship Fund was established to help provide scholarships to ESA members’ families, employees, and employees’ families, and is supported 100% by donations.

A limited number of scholarships will be awarded to ESA members, families, employees, and employee’s families who meet the criteria below. Winners will be selected at random in an open drawing of all qualified applicants during the ESA 2019 Annual Convention. Applicants need not to be present to win.
