AFWA Des Moines Chapter Scholarships


The mission of AFWA is to enable women in all accounting and related fields to achieve their full personal, professional and economic potential and to contribute to the future development of their profession. 

To help realize our mission, the Des Moines Chapter has established a scholarship program for local accounting students. Our chapter scholarship awards will vary each year based on available funds from our scholarship fundraising efforts. The scholarship committee selects recipients based on several criteria including participation in AFWA events, essay, recommendations and academic achievement. 

In addition to chapter scholarships, scholarships are available through the AFWA Educational Foundation. Use the link below for the latest application or  visit the AFWA Foundation page for additional information on national AFWA scholarships offered by The Foundation including the AFWA member scholarships. Chapters submit applications to the AFWA Educational Foundation for consideration for Foundation scholarships.
