EWCA Student Scholarships

It is decision time at the Center for student scholarship applicants. The Center has just completed reviewing hundreds of applications for these awards. We are proud to note that we expect that ten students will receive EWCA scholarships this year. Special thanks to the many EWC alumni who have made contributions to the alumni fund drive which provides the funds used for these EWCA scholarships. Your support means that the Center will have 10 additional students in its program in the year ahead. Mahalo!
