AFWA Milwaukee Chapter Scholarships

The mission of AFWA is to enable women in all accounting and finance fields to achieve their full potential and to contribute to their profession.

To help realize our mission, the AFWA Milwaukee Chapter grants up to two scholarships each year to a student majoring in Accounting or Finance who is a Wisconsin resident attending a school with a Wisconsin campus, including on-line attendance at such school. We will begin to accept applications on January 1, 2021.

One scholarship for $750 may be awarded to a student in a two-year program who has completed at least 30 credit hours (or the equivalent of one full year) by the end of the semester that includes the application deadline. This is payable in one installment at the beginning of the fall 2021 semester. The application deadline for this two-year scholarship is March 15, 2021. The successful candidate will be notified no later than April 15, 2021. No notice will be sent to the remaining applicants.

Another scholarship for $2,000 may be awarded to a student in a four-year or five-year program who will have completed 60 credit hours (or the equivalent of two full years) by the end of the semester prior to the application deadline. This scholarship is payable in two installments: Fall 2021 and Spring 2022. The application deadline for this four-year or five-year scholarship is March 15, 2021. The successful candidate will be notified no later than April 15, 2021. No notice will be sent to the remaining applicants.

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