Karin M. Drury, Scholarship Chair

As of January 15, 2018 the applications and instructions for our $ 1,000.00 Adult Learner Scholarships will be available on the BPWEV website - www.bpwev.org

Please help spread the word at your place of work. It will also be available on the SCF website and other colleges. Articles to apply will also be published in the local newspapers.

It’s easy to apply. Any female Adult Learner who is presently enrolled or has been accepted at a college, university, technical or vocational school can apply. We also encourage female veterans or spouses of veterans to apply. The applicant has to live in either Sarasota or Charlotte County.  The scholarship money will be sent to the appropriate college/school, not to the applicant.

The scholarship committee presently has 3 members. They are Ann Wacholder, Carol Kouba and Karin Drury. We encourage our new members to serve on the committee which usually meets in May after all applications have been received. The deadline for the applications is April 30, 2018.

The Business and Professional Women of Englewood and Venice are accepting applications through April 30, 2018 for three $1000 adult learner scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic years.

The BPW Scholarships focus completely on the adult learner. You will note from this website that BPWEV is engaged in the national program “Joining Forces for Women Veterans and Military Spouses”. One goal is to help these women in completing advanced education or training.
