Scholarships

Listed below are several scholarships for which our students qualify. Although we can’t guarantee an outcome, we can tell you that several of our students have received these scholarships each year over the past several years.

AWI Education Foundation

The Architectural Woodwork Institute Education Foundation offers scholarships each year for qualified students who seek a career in woodworking. The scholarship is awarded to one student per school. Interested NESAW students complete the application form (provided by the school), write a short essay and provide letters of recommendation; the director then selects the most qualified and submits his or her name to the selection committee. The amount of the scholarship varies by the number of applicants, but our students have received anywhere from $500 – $2,000. Applications are due in March and scholarships are generally awarded in June.

Woodwork Institute

The Woodwork Institute offers the C.E. Bernhauer, Jr. Scholarship for students interested in a woodworking career. The number of scholarships and the amount varies from year to year, but students have received $500 – $1,000 in the past. We will let students know when the applications are available each year.

WMIA Educational Foundation

The Woodworking Manufacturing Industry offers an annual scholarship. Applications will be made available in late winter. Interested NESAW students should complete the form and provide a transcript, a letter of recommendation from a previous employer and a recommendation from the NESAW director. The amount of the scholarship may vary, but generally ranges from $500 – $1,000.

Allen Booth Vocational Scholarship

The Allen Booth offers an annual $500 scholarship. Interested NESAW students should write the required essay and submit by July 31, 2017.
