SOCIETY FOR COMMUNITY WORK (SCW) SCHOLARSHIPS
The Society for Community Work (SCW) awards annual competitive scholarships to current high school students planning to attend accredited 2- or 4-year institutions, as well as to continuing undergraduate students who received SCW scholarships the previous year. We select students whose work will reflect the values of Unitarian Universalism as described in our Principles: https://www.uua.org/beliefs/what-we-believe/principles and https://www.8thprincipleuu.org/
Awards typically range from $1500 to $2500 per year and are distributed prior to the beginning of the new academic year (usually July). Scholarship recipients are required to complete 12 units or more per quarter or semester.
Please Note: Dreamers not qualifying under the California DREAM Act are also encouraged to apply.
