EWI of WESTERN WASHINGTON
We serve 19 counties in Western Washington and to maintain equitable distribution of our local scholarship funds, we select schools in counties on a rotating basis: 2023 scholarships are targeted to Washington State's Clallam, Jefferson, and Grays Harbor Counties.
The ASIST Scholarship is available to adults facing economic, social, or physical challenges, who are looking to improve their situation through educational opportunities. Local Chapters partner with educational providers and social services agencies to identify potential candidates. Students first apply and compete at the local Chapter level. Chapter-level winners are submitted to the Corporate level for the opportunity to be selected for an additional scholarship ranging from $2,000 to $10,000.
The EWISP scholarship is an annual competition based program which awards more than $100,000 in college scholarship money each year to qualifying high school seniors. Judges select winning students based on their scholastic achievement, leadership qualities, good citizenship and extracurricular activities.
EWI is committed to the international promotion of literacy, which has been the focus of EWI's philanthropy projects since 1992. EWI members dedicate their time and talents to a variety of philanthropy projects to increase literacy awareness among both children and adults. EWI Chapters across North America have enlisted the aid of corporations, writers, teachers, and many others to promote reading and writing opportunities to children. Projects vary from Chapter to Chapter but all with the same goal, to make a lasting and positive impact in our communities.
