Houston Chapter #33 Scholarship Program

 

To help realize our mission of enabling women in all accounting, finance and related fields to achieve their full personal, professional and economic potential and to contribute to the future development of their profession, the Houston Chapter has established a scholarship program for local accounting and finance students.  Interested students should submit their completed scholarship applications by April 1 for consideration. The scholarship committee will select recipients based on several criteria including, participation in AFWA events, essay, recommendations and academic achievement. Scholarships will be awarded to recipients during our Annual Scholarship Award Event in May of the following year.
