Scholarships Overview


PWCA Scholarships provide financial assistance to high school seniors who exhibit excellence in a well rounded educational and extracurricular program. Each year, we award four $1000 scholarships and four $500 scholarships based on essay submissions. The scholarships are made possible by the Annual PWCA Convention Clinic, and are administered by the PWCA Scholarship Committee.
