ASIST SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM (Adult Students in Scholastic Transition)

EWI recognizes that education opens the door to opportunities.  To support that endeavor, giving back through scholarships and literacy initiatives is what EWI is all about.   For applicants that want to advance their education, EWI offers scholarship opportunities through ASIST.   At the grade-school level, EWI participates in literacy programs such as the Reading Rally which is descried in more detail under Philanthropy.

The ASIST scholarship is available to adults facing economic, social, or physical challenges, who are looking to improve their situation through educational opportunities.

The Denver Chapter has received 12 applications for the ASIST scholarship funds.    Judging is underway and selections will be made by May 22.

The BCDP/ASIST Committee and our independent judges selected the following four individuals to receive a total of $10,000 in scholarship awards for 2018.
  • Sonja Davis plans to attend Front Range Community College to study for a degree in Health Information Technology.
  • Monica Edlauer plans to attend Front Range Community College to study for a degree I Nursing.
  • Danielle Keady plans to attend the Community College of Denver to study for a degree in Dental Hygiene.
  • Leah Porter plans to attend the University of Colorado of Denver to study for a degree in Business Management and Human Resources.

Once enrollment verifications are received the disbarment checks will be sent to the respective colleges.

Sonja Davis was submitted to Corporate for one of their scholarship awards.
The Committee continues to look for ways to promote our winners and the ASIST program.   The Committee hopes that the winners can be invited to the August meeting to be part of the program.  Their comments could be recorded and used at the annual fundraiser event and to post on our website.  The scholarship winners will be invited to the September fundraiser as our guests.   We will continue to look for other ideas on how the Chapter can recognize and promote our scholarship winners.
