SCHOLARSHIPS AND STUDENT OF THE YEAR AWARDS

Approximately $50,000 was given in scholarships this year to students from our CAWS member schools.  This money comes from the annual dues that authorized IB CA schools pay to be members of CAWS.   Our Association and the student award recipients thank all of the schools that pay their yearly CAWS dues.  The names of the Student of the Year award winners along with our scholarship recipients for the 2016-17 school year.are on our website.
 
New scholarship forms will be available this August.  Remember that all member schools are eligible to submit nominations for CAWS funded scholarships for students and educators.
