4. Does NCAAWA provide scholarships for continuing education?
Yes. Submit your application each year you meet the qualifications.
5. How much money can be awarded to an applicant?
NCAAWA scholarships depend completely on our availability of funds, so we have no set amount.

A check is issued payable to the student in the amount of the scholarship and may be used for school-related expenses. To claim the scholarship, students must submit proof of full-time enrollment (12 units).
7. What if I cannot obtain the courses needed to meet the 12 units required?
The scholarship amount is based upon a full-time load (12 units). If lesser units are taken, the award will be divided according to the equivalent number of units, i.e., 9 units, you will receive 3/4 of the award; 6 units, you will receive 1/2 the award for the semester.
8. May I apply for the scholarship more than one time?
Only eligible students may apply more than once. Please review the eligibility requirements of each scholarship to see if you qualify.
