Membership Scholarship

To Apply for an AWC Springfield Membership Scholarship:

The AWC Springfield, Illinois Chapter Member Scholarship is intended to provide financial support to self-employed or self-paying AWC Springfield members, new and existing. The scholarship is $50 for professional members; $25 for student members. The scholarship serves as a refund towards an individual’s AWC national membership dues and is not intended to be renewed annually.

With this investment in our members, it is expected that the member be an active participant in the chapter and attend at least three AWC events during their scholarship in order to invest their time and talent back into the chapter.  Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Awards will be made to qualified applicants until funds are depleted annually.
