EWI proudly offers two programs, ASIST and EWISP to help qualified applicants achieve their academic goals. EWI Chapters that participate in these programs develop their own criteria regarding deadlines, areas of limitation, eligible schools and partner agencies. EWI of Spokane participates in both programs.

EWI Scholarship Program (EWISP)

Students planning to pursue a degree at an accredited post-secondary institution may apply for an EWI Scholarship award.

In 2015, EWI of Spokane will award three scholarships to high school juniors in the amounts of $6,000, $3,000 and $2,000 to be applied toward college tuition, books or related expenses.

For 2015 only, one additional scholarship for $6,000 will be awarded to a high school senior.

Only one junior and one senior from each area high school is eligible to apply.  Students who wish to apply should consult with their school counselor.

Students must be enrolled full time in a public, private, or parochial school located within the territorial boundaries of EWI of Spokane.  Applications must be submitted to the appropriate school counselor who will determine which applications will be considered by the EWI panel of evaluators.  All applications must be postmarked by March 27, 2015.
