The Columbian Women of The George Washington University scholarship application is now open.  Each year, Columbian Women awards $90,000 in scholarships to women attending GWU. Scholarships are provided to students of all GWU schools; it is not limited to students in Columbian College.

The objective of The Columbian Women Scholarship (TUITION ONLY) is to recognize and assist women pursuing a degree program in any field of study at The George Washington University who demonstrate a high level of achievement in academia and a commitment to their chosen profession.

The Columbian Women Scholarship is based on merit and financial need. Applicants are first evaluated for financial need; applicants meeting the need criteria typically have an expected family contribution of less than $10,000 as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All applicants are required to complete a FAFSA application prior to applying for a Columbian Women Scholarship.

Awards will only be made for the 2017-2018 academic year. Although award amounts may vary, approximately $90,000 will be awarded in 2017-2018 with most individual awards ranging between $5,000 and $10,000. Scholarship awards will cover tuition costs only.
