Available Scholarships


EWI proudly offers two programs, EWISP and ASIST, 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 2019, EWI of Spokane awarded three scholarships to high school juniors in the amounts of $6,000, $3,000, and $2,000 to be applied to college tuition, books or related expenses.

Students must be enrolled full time in a public, private, or parochial school located within the territorial boundaries of EWI of Spokane.  Up to three (3) juniors from each area high school are eligible to apply.

Students who wish to apply should consult with their school counselor.  Applications must be submitted to the appropriate school counselor who will determine which applications will be considered by the EWI panel of evaluators.

Applicants must provide four (4) copies of the completed application, which includes:

  • Completed EWISP Application Form (which can be obtained from your school counselor)
  • Autobiographical essay
  • Listing of awards and honors
  • Copy of unofficial transcripts
  • Two letters of recommendation: one from a sponsoring school official and one from a personal contact (other than a school official)

Carefully review the Submission Checklist provided with the EWISP application and verify that you have all your documents (and copies) completed and attached before sending your packet to EWI of Spokane.  No handwritten applications will be considered.  All submissions must be typewritten and printed in black ink.

EWI assists adult students who are striving to achieve their educational and career goals while effectively overcoming adversity in their lives. Each year EWI of Spokane works with one or more colleges, as well as agencies working with adults in transition in the Spokane area to identify candidates for this scholarship.

Applications for the 2020 ASIST scholarship must be submitted no later than March 20, 2020.  One student will be selected to receive a $4,000 scholarship to be used toward furthering his/her educational goals.
