Purpose: This scholarship offers an impactful way to combine the RWIEF’s mission and values of past IRWA leaders.

One $2,500 scholarship toward IRWA education courses will be available to each of IRWA’s 68 Chapters within the 10 Regions. The RWIEF will fund the program (up to $170,000) for two years from June 2022 to May 2024. IRWA will manage the program. Eligibility: Scholarship applicants must be active IRWA members in good standing for at least five years, hold the RWA or RWP credential, and have served as either a former or current Chapter or Region officer, or on a Chapter committee.
