What is the deadline for scholarship applications?

The scholarship application deadline is March 31st. Please submit your completed application and supporting materials by this date. 

If I receive the scholarship, will I get a check or does the money go to the school?

The recipient(s) of the scholarship may elect to receive up to $500 of the award paid to themselves directly. The balance of the award will be paid directly to the school. Exceptions may be made based upon individual circumstances. Please contact us to discuss your specific situation in greater detail.

A completed W-9 will be required from any recipient who elects to have a portion of the funds given to them directly. The Athena A.C.E. Association will make payment of the awards once enrollment is confirmed.

Do I have to be enrolled before I begin applying for scholarships?

No, you do not have to be officially enrolled in order to begin your quest for scholarships. However, if you are a chosen recipient, you must be enrolled by September 30th 2021. The Association will ask for enrollment verification.

Are graduate students eligible?

Our scholarships are available to any woman over the age of 25 seeking further education. This includes taking classes through a college/university at any level of study or a certificate/diploma program.
