Every year, the San Diego Chinese Women’s Association awards scholarships to selected outstanding students of Chinese descent who are attending high school 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 graduating high school senior attending a San Diego County school with a minimum GPA of 3.0/weighted)
2. A one-time $1000 scholarship for use at a two-year community college or vocational program (to be eligible, an applicant must be a graduating high school senior attending a San Diego County school 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.
