The EWI Scholarship Program (EWISP) is an annual, competition-based program which awards more than $25,000 in college scholarship money to qualifying high school seniors each year.
Students are nominated by their schools to participate in the scholarship competition. Judges select winning students based on their scholastic achievement, leadership qualities, good citizenship and extra-curricular activities.
High school seniors first apply for EWISP and then compete at the local Chapter level where award levels vary. Chapter level winners are submitted to the Corporate level for a chance to win one of multiple scholarships. Scholarship Awards range between $1,000 and $4,000.
