The Education Awards
FAWCO hopes to promote international understanding and good will by giving annual awards for study, in the US or abroad, at high school, undergraduate and graduate levels. The Foundation Awards Program is open to all FAWCO club and FAUSA (FAWCO Alumnae USA) members, their children and grandchildren, regardless of nationality and regardless of whether or not the affiliated club has made a contribution to the Foundation’s programs. All awards are merit-based. The nine 2019 Education Awards each valued at $5000 are divided into three categories: Academic Studies Awards, Dual Cultural Award and Member Awards.

The Development Grants
The FAWCO Foundation Development Grant Fund is a dynamic program which financially assists projects that are passionately supported by FAWCO Member Clubs. The purpose of the program is to fund projects that can make an immediate impact and lead to success for the people they support. The assistance offered should be direct and have a sustainable goal. To be eligible to nominate a project for one of this year's $5500 awards, the club must have worked with the organization for at least one year.
