CWA established the Joe Beirne Foundation in October 1974 to honor CWA's founding president and his commitment to education.

Today the foundation offers 15 partial college scholarships of $3,000 each for the upcoming academic year. Winners were selected in a lottery drawing and also receive second-year scholarships for the same amount if they meet satisfactory academic standards. Part-time students taking fewer than 12 credits receive half the scholarship amount.
