The EWVCF and its affiliates use an online scholarship application hosted by AwardSpring, for most scholarships. To access the application, you will need to create a username and password. Once you’ve created an account you can enter the system, learn about the different scholarship opportunities, familiarize yourself with the application and begin filling completing it. The system is designed to match you to scholarships based on specific scholarship criteria, so you will be asked to answer a series of qualifying questions.
