The FAWCO Foundation Education Awards Program - an Introduction

awards logoCreated by and for FAWCO clubs, the Awards Program recognizes and honors the academic excellence and all-around achievement of FAWCO Club and FAUSA members and their children and grandchildren. FAWCO hopes to promote international understanding and good will by giving annual awards for study, in the U.S. or abroad, at high school, undergraduate and graduate levels.


Since the first award was given under the aegis of The Foundation in 1972, many hundreds of thousands of dollars have been given to over 150 recipients. Every year we adjust the program to funds available, and to the changing needs of members and members' children.
