The Professional Women’s Association (PWA) is offering a limited number of $200 book grants for re-entry/non-traditional students.

Grants are intended to support current UCSB re-entry/non-traditional students who face challenges to complete their degrees due to being a student, parent, wage earner, community volunteer, and/or participant in co-curricular activities. UCSB defines a re-entry/non-traditional student as someone who is returning to his or her education after a period of time, and/or is married, and/or has dependents. The committee will choose the scholarship recipients based on a student’s application and financial need. UCSB PWA

Deadline: Wednesday, Feb. 24 by 5 p.m.

Eligibility: Currently enrolled UCSB re-entry/non-traditional student, who has never won the award.

To Apply: Online applications only.

Applicants will be notified if they were selected and announced to the community no later than March 11. Awards will be disbursed at the beginning of Spring Quarter, and winners will be recognized at the PWA Professional Development Conference in May.
