ADMINISTERED SCHOLARSHIPS

These scholarships are offered in addition to WOASF scholarships, so it is possible to be a recipient of a WOASF scholarship and the scholarships below. To apply for any administered scholarship you must complete the WOASF pre-qualification and scholarship application. To begin an application, click here. On the application you will have a choice of administered scholarships available, please check all for which you are qualified.  You must provide proof of sponsor's service in that command (or community) in order to be considered for administered scholarships.
