Award Disclaimer

We reserve the right  to withhold the CSW Global Educational Opportunities Scholarship if it creates an over-award for a prospective recipient. In most cases, an over-award would result in the scholarship offsetting a student’s financial aid debt, rather than offsetting program costs as intended.
