Every year, the San Diego Chinese Women’s Association awards scholarships to selected outstanding students of Chinese descent who are attending high school or community college in San Diego County.  Scholarships are open to both male and female applicants of at least one-quarter Chinese descent.

Two types of scholarships are available:

1. A one-time $1500 scholarship for use at a four-year university (to be eligible, an applicant must be a high school senior attending a San Diego County school with a minimum GPA of 3.0/weighted)

2. A one-time $500 scholarship for use at a two-year community college or vocational college (to be eligible, an applicant must be currently enrolled at a San Diego community college with a minimum GPA of 2.5)

The total number of scholarships to be awarded will depend on availability of funding and the number of deserving applicants.

To apply, download the application form.  Applications must be postmarked no later than March 27, 2014 for consideration. Incomplete and late-postmarked applications will not be reviewed. For more information, or questions about SDCWA scholarships, please contact the Scholarship Chair.
