Seward Scholarships are awarded annually on to Undergraduate college students at select schools that are affiliated with SELEF on the basis of their academic achievement and contributions to the community.

This is a merit based scholarship.

Scholarships are awarded only to those applicants who will be full time students in the 2022-2023 academic year, and must be used to meet direct educational expenses such as books and class supplies. Scholarships will range up to $1,000 and are awarded on a competitive basis.

 The 2022 Seward Scholarship competition will be conducted in four stages.

1.     Submission of Seward Scholarship Application and Official Transcript

 The Seward Scholarship Application should be prepared by the student. The applicant must have their college send an official transcript of grades to the Committee.  

 No applicant will be considered for the scholarship unless the application and official transcript are both received by the deadline.

 The application deadline is July 11, 2022.
