Each year EWTG awards scholarships to its members to support professional and personal development and to reward and encourage EWTG participation. This program allows members an opportunity to enhance their skills, learn new ones through training, coursework, conferences, and more.

  • Only one scholarship per person per calendar year will be awarded.
  • Receipt of application will be confirmed

You must complete the application in one sitting. Before beginning an application, gather up and/or write down all pertinent information about your EWTG scholarship request:

  • Course description and dates
  • Reason for taking the course
  • How taking the course will help you professionally
  • How you will transfer knowledge from the course to your colleagues and to EWTG
  • Information about your EWTG servers including
    • All events attended within the past 12 months
    • Contributions to philanthropic and community service events
    • Committee, board, and affiliate officer service
    • Participation in the EWTG Annual Conference
    • Executive Success Teams and other mentoring opportunities

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and are awarded quarterly. Leadership Texas and Leadership America scholarship applications must be submitted by the third quarter scholarship deadline. Any approved Leadership Texas or Leadership America scholarships will be contingent on acceptance into the respective programs. EWTG is required by law to collect W9s from any scholarship recipient whose travel reimbursements exceed $600. The total of available scholarship funds may be awarded to multiple applicants. One application per person per quarter will be accepted.

Deadlines: Scholarship applications will be accepted throughout the year and awarded quarterly. Applications must be received by EWTG no later than 5:00pm on the due date for the quarterly award requested. Submissions made after the deadline will be considered for the next quarter. Submission deadlines are as follows:

Qualifications: All current EWTG members in good standing are eligible to apply for a scholarship with the following exceptions: the President, President-Elect, Financial Officer, Treasurer and current Scholarship Committee members may not apply for a scholarship during the year of their service.

Commitment: Scholarships are based on the member’s participation and commitment to EWTG with a smaller emphasis on the benefits of the scholarship to the member, their organization, and EWTG. If a member fails to fulfill their qualification requirements and commitments, they must repay EWTG the entire award amount. All recipients must provide a transfer of knowledge learned from the degree program and coursework to EWTG members through a newsletter article or meeting, mini-course or conference course presentation.

  • Travel associated with the Leadership Texas / Leadership America program will be reimbursed after receipt of Reimbursement Request form and appropriate documentation. Submit your reimbursement request to EWTG no later than 30 days after your project or travel has been completed. Air travel is reimbursed at coach fare. Rental car expenses must be pre-approved.
  • EWTG will pay the institution, organization or provider directly when possible. Should EWTG be unable to make a direct payment, EWTG will reimburse the scholarship awardee upon receipt of a completed and approved Reimbursement Request form and appropriate documentation.
  • Income Taxes: Some scholarships may be subject to federal Income Tax if travel or other expenses are reimbursed. EWTG is required by law to collect W9s from any scholarship recipient whose travel reimbursements exceed $600. If the scholarship is determined to be subject to federal income tax, an appropriate a 1099 will be issued. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.

Scholarship Committee members review the applications and recommend awards to the Board of Directors depending upon the number of points earned.
