2018 WAMHS Rosario Carrizo Education Scholarship Awards

ATTENTION: graduating seniors, counselors, caseworkers, parents, mentors, and other concerned adults working with students in the South Texas area.

Women’s & Men’s Health Services of the Coastal Bend (WAMHS) is proud to provide scholarship opportunities to assist young people along their journey to a more successful future. While higher education is an important stepping stone toward that future, we know how expensive college can be! Each year WAMHS offers several awards that can assist graduating seniors who are most in need. 

This year WAMHS will grant three scholarships: one $750 award, and two $500 awards.
