Sixteen partial college scholarships of $4,000 each are being offered for the 2024-2025 school year. Winners are selected in a lottery drawing, and will also receive second-year scholarships of the same amount contingent upon satisfactory academic accomplishment. Part-time students enrolled in less than 12 credits are eligible to receive a $2,000 scholarship.
CWA members, their spouses, children and grandchildren, including those of retired or deceased members, are all eligible for the scholarship award.
