Funds for the Army Spouses’ Club of the Greater Washington Area (ASCGWA) Scholarship are raised by the Army Spouses’ Club of the Greater Washington Area. The number and amounts of scholarships awarded each year vary based on the number of eligible applications received and the amount of scholarship funds available.
The scholarship is a limited eligibility scholarship. Only applicants who meet the eligibility requirements stated below will be considered for this scholarship.
The scholarship is a merit scholarship. Scholarship awards are based upon consideration of applicants’ academic achievement, community involvement and/or leadership potential. Financial need is not considered.
Scholarships are awarded in three categories: High School Senior, College Student and Member/Spouse. Applicants can be awarded only one scholarship each year. Applicants may receive a scholarship as a high school senior and later receive another scholarship as a college student.
Applicants who are awarded a scholarship as a college student or spouse cannot reapply for a scholarship in that category. Unsuccessful college student or spouse applicants may reapply for a scholarship in that category as long as they continue to meet the eligibility requirements for the scholarship.
Scholarship funds are restricted to payment of tuition, fees, and other required expenses in relation to educational processes.
Scholarship award determinations are made without regard to applicants’ race, color, sex, religion, or national origin.
