The Silicon Valley Chapter of the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance (AFWA) has been awarding scholarships since 1976 and has distributed over $70,000 during that time.
Scholarships are awarded annually. Applications will open in January and are awarded in April. We encourage you to introduce AFWA to a potential applicant for next year and continue to think of fundraising opportunities throughout the year so we may reach even more of the future stars.
For the 2016-2017 fiscal year we will be awarding two $2,500 scholarships.
The mission of the Foundation is to promote and advance education, career development and leadership in finance and accounting, with the goal of guiding women to achieve success in their careers. We believe that to decrease barriers for women in the accounting and financial profession, education and access to career development resources are essential. The Foundation aims to ensure women will have the tools and resources to achieve every career success they desire.
