The CHW Scholarship Fund

The Cannon Heyman & Weiss, LLP Scholarship Fund was created in 2013 to help students in families living in affordable housing developments realize their dream of furthering their educational training. Providing financial aid to qualified students is an extension of the CHW mission and reflective of our commitment to the affordable housing industry and community development. Due to the success of last year's program, we have decided to continue the CHW Scholarship Fund program. The Scholarship Fund is entirely underwritten by CHW and we are neither soliciting nor accepting outside financial support.

Scholarships will be awarded to successful applicants for full-time and part-time undergraduate study at approved colleges, junior colleges, technical schools, and other post-secondary institutions leading to a degree, diploma, or certificate. Study at the graduate level is not eligible for scholarship support. This year's awards are expected as follows: $10,000, $5,000, $2,000. Receipt of other grants and scholarships may reduce the CHW Scholarship award if the total of all aid received is greater than the student's cost of attendance. Deadline for receipt of application: May 16, 2014
