Helpful Hints

  • On the online Scholarship Application, be sure to answer all questions in as much detail as possible. The time you invest in writing a thoughtful response could literally pay off.
  • Be sure to mail or deliver your transcripts, with any required supplemental materials attached, so that SWIEF physically receives them on or before the posted deadline.  Transcripts and materials received after this date, regardless of post mark, will not be considered.
