ABWM Foundation Scholarship

In an effort to further increase accessibility to certification, the ABWM Foundation offers scholarships to cover the cost of a candidate’s initial certification examination fee for exams offered by the American Board of Wound Management (CWS®, CWSP®. CWCA®). Up to 10 certification exam scholarships will be offered annually, and applications will be reviewed twice per year during the ABWM Foundation Board of Trustees in-person meetings.


  • Scholarships are open to candidates meeting the eligibility criteria for certification set forth by the American Board of Wound Management.
  • Scholarships are only available to first-time candidates. Scholarships will not be available for retesting, rescheduling, or re-certifying candidates.
  • A copy of the candidate’s most recent tax return will be required with application.
