How to Increase My Odds of Getting
A USAWOA Scholarship

In preparation for the 2022 USAWOA Scholarship Program, I want to take this time to share some tips learned from previous applicants. I encourage USAWOA members to share this with dependents who want to submit the best application possible. There is a tremendous amount of paperwork and documentation; it benefits each applicant to provide ALL documentation identified on the checklist. I encourage you to follow these tips to better your chances of being awarded a scholarship.

  • Do not wait until the last minute to submit your application.
  • Become familiar with the application process. If you do not understand something, call or email me for answers to your questions.
  • Check your application for completeness. Recheck the following:
    • Eliminate blank spaces.
    • Type your application.
    • Include your USAWOA sponsor’s or applicant’s rank, member number and phone number. Include a word count on your essay.
    • Be sure to stick to the subject of your essay.
    • Sign the bottom of your essay.
    • Include a 4 X 6 head and shoulder photo on glossy or semi-glossy paper.

Please know that the USAWOA Scholarship Program is very competitive. Each scholarship awarded will be for $1,500.00 each. You are already a winner by making the decision to further your education!

The Board of Directors wishes each applicant Good Luck!
