Multiple awards offered annually.
Each year, YWAF awards Higher Education Scholarships to women who show commitment to community service and leadership by dedicating 40 hours to a Community Impact Project. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide tuition assistance to these women while they complete their Community Impact Project. A Community Impact Project can be an event, campaign, dedication of service, or other initiative planned by the recipient. Competitive projects aim to make a significant impact on the community. YWAF looks to support women who demonstrate exceptional leadership, academic achievement, and strong commitment to their community. Scholarship recipients are chosen based on five criteria: long-term commitment to community service, 25 percent; demonstrated leadership, 25 percent; organized, detailed plan for a Community Impact Project with significant impact, 20 percent; academic achievement, 15 percent; financial need, 15 percent. Competitive applicants will be selected for interviews with members of the Young Women's Alliance. The interviews will be held in mid-April. Scholarship recipients will be announced shortly after. Applicants cannot be prior recipients of this scholarship.
The application deadline date has not yet been finalized for this year, but is expected to remain the same as last year. The deadline date shown here is tentative based on last year's date. Please che ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
