Celebrating 70 Years! SWIC 7.0 : How Big Can You Dream?
In celebration of SWIC's 70th birthday, the SWIC 7.0 : How Big Can You Dream? campaign aims to help students, at any age, achieve their goals. For 70 years, SWIC has been committed to providing hundreds of thousands of students - from teens to senior citizens - with the knowledge and tools they need to pursue their dreams. Throughout the year we will celebrate the successes of our alumni and the role that SWIC has played in helping make their dreams a reality.

Since its inception in 1975, the Foundation has awarded students nearly $4 million in scholarships. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we continue this tradition by awarding over $250,000 in scholarships to more than 250 students each year.
