AFWA Milwaukee Chapter Scholarships

The mission of AFWA is to enable women in all accounting and related fields to achieve their full personal, professional and economic potential and to contribute to the future development of their profession.

To help realize our mission, the AFWA Milwaukee Chapter grants up to two scholarships each year to women students who are majoring in Accounting or Finance and attending a Wisconsin school. We will begin to accept applications on October 1, 2014. 

One scholarship for $750 will be awarded to a woman in a two-year program who will be entering or is already in her second year in the coming semester. This is payable in one installment at the beginning of the semester. The application deadline for this two-year scholarship is April 1, 2015.

Another scholarship for $2,000 will be awarded to a woman in a four-year program who will be entering her undergraduate senior year in the fall 2015 semester. This scholarship is payable in two installments: Fall 2015 & Spring 2016. The application deadline for this four-year scholarship is April 1, 2015. 

Applicants for both scholarships are judged on grades, extracurricular activities, life experience and essay. Upon selection, payment is contingent upon the recipient providing proof of enrollment for the upcoming semester, academic level at the time from the previous semester and maintaining personal conduct at the school she attends. Only the award recipient need supply this corroborating documentation. An application is all that is needed at this time.

The scholarship recipients will be expected to attend one of our monthly meetings that are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Radisson Hotel Milwaukee West, as our guest. No notice will be sent to the remaining applicants.

Only fully completed and signed applications will be considered. 

The Scholarship Application can be downloaded and submitted to the Scholarship Chair as listed below.
