Executive Women International Scholarship Program

The Executive Women International Scholarship® Program (EWISP) has been helping high school students achieve their academic goals for more than 40 years. Recognized by Money magazine as one of the top 12 scholarship opportunities in the United States, EWISP allows selected students to compete at both the EWI chapter and corporate levels for scholarships. This scholarship program has been approved by the National Association of Secondary School Principals and the American Vocational Association. In 2012, EWISP was updated to recognize high school seniors instead of juniors.


  • The scholarship is open to all high school seniors in public, private and parochial schools.
  • Students must use their award toward earning a four-year degree at an accredited college or university. (Students may attend a two-year accredited college, but only as the initial step in the pursuit of a four-year degree).
  • Nominations are being accepted from December to March.
  • A demonstrated financial need.
  • A minimum 3.00 GPA on a 4.0 scale.

Judging Criteria:
Students are judged on merit based on their application materials, oral and written communication skills, creativity, scholastic records, involvement in extracurricular activities, leadership qualities, awards and honors, citizenship, attitude and clearly defined career goals.
