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

Scholarships are awarded only to full time students and must be used to meet direct educational expenses such as room, board, tuition, and books. Scholarships will range up to $1,000 and are awarded on a competitive basis.

The 2017 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 his 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 10, 2017.
