Federation of American Women's Clubs Overseas
Our Club has been a member of FAWCO since 1993. This organization is an international network of 78 independent American women's associations located on six continents. With a combined membership of over 17,000 women, FAWCO brings member clubs together to support American women living abroad, to share information on matters of common interest, and to address the particular issues affecting American citizens residing outside the USA

They take time to put together and they're at the end of the holidays - it's never to early to start your application!
As members of a FAWCO Member club, we and our children and grandchildren are all eligible for various undergraduate, graduate and continuing education awards. These are grants of $5,000 in various areas of study:
Arts, Sciences, Humanities, STEM, and on and on...
There's even a Dual Cultural Award - this is $5,000 towards a semester of High School or an academic or structured educational summer program in the US for children of dual nationality.

Support FAWCO as you shop online!
You can help support the FAWCO Foundation (which funds the Member education grants and other programs available to members) via online shopping.
If you have a US Amazon Account, you can set your smile.amazon.com charity to the FAWCO Foundation (be sure to search for the full name). iGive also donates proceeds when you search at many familiar online brands - and you can select the FAWCO Foundation there too.
