AWIEF Scholarship Program
By nominating your most talented students, you help them access leading education and training that lays the groundwork for their future success.
The Architectural Woodwork Institute Education Foundation (AWIEF) Scholarship Program gives woodworking students the opportunity to receive $500 - $4,000 to offset the costs of their woodwork studies. By nominating your most talented students, you help them access leading education and training that lays the groundwork for their future success.
As a woodwork program instructor or school administrator, you can nominate up to two outstanding woodworking students for consideration of the AWIEF Scholarship Program. Who you choose to nominate is entirely your decision, as there are no conditions or requirements that students must meet to qualify for nomination.
Please be aware that only two nominations at most will be accepted per instructor. Nominating more than two students will result in disqualification for all nominees from that instructor.
