2015-16 PWA Legacy & Barbara S. Uehling Book Grant Application
The UCSB Professional Women's Association (PWA) promotes the advancement of women at UCSB and serves as a voice for women in the discussion of campus issues. PWA’s goals include education, acknowledging women’s contributions to UCSB, mentoring, and outreach to the campus and community.
PWA offers a limited number of $200 (minimum) book grants to re-entry/non-traditional students each year. The grants will be awarded to current UCSB re-entry/non-traditional students who might face unique challenges in completing their degrees as they juggle being a student, parent, wage earner, community volunteer, and/or participant in co-curricular activities. UCSB defines a re-entry/non-traditional student as someone who is returning to his or her education after a period of time, and/or is married, and/or has dependents. The committee will choose the grant recipient(s) based on a student’s application and financial need.
