The Tradeswomen America Scholarship (TW Scholarship) is a highly selective, last-dollar scholarship for outstanding individuals from low-income households. Selected Scholars will receive funding for part or all of the cost of attendance to earn a college diploma in a skilled trade, that is not already covered by other financial aid and the expected family contribution, as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or the methodology used by a Scholar’s school or college.
The award for each TW Scholarship varies, depending on the individual’s tuition need, career path, and college selected. The award is intended to fully cover tuition to completion of a certificate, diploma, or degree in a skilled trade. The average award is approximately $8,500.00.
TO REMAIN ELIGIBLE STUDENTS MUST SUBMIT:
1. A completed FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) prior to each academic year. This is obtained at the www.fafsa.ed.gov website.
2. Transcripts showing that they are continuing to meet their institution’s academic requirements, at the beginning of each academic year.
3. Enrollment Verification forms dated the day after the start of each new term.
Additionally, students must maintain Tradeswomen America active membership status and must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress towards skilled trade certificate, diploma, or degree attainment.
