Scholarships

 

WISE Women of Blair County (WISE stands for Women Involved in Scholarship and Empowerment) has granted $24,000 in  scholarships each year for women to continue their education.

 

The mission of the organization is to empower women and to eliminate racism through collaboration, service, and education. 

 

The mission is fulfilled by providing scholarships, awarding grants, and recognizing outstanding women in out community through the annual Tribute dinner.

 

Applications include two essay questions that will give the applicant an opportunity to share her goals and plans for reaching these goals, as well as how she overcame adversity in your life.  Details about the applicant’s educational background and any additional information she would like to provide for the committee must be attached to the application and received by the stated deadline. 

 

Contents of all applications are held in strict confidence.    Scholarship awards will not be sent directly to the recipient, but to the entity to which monies are owed.  All applicants will be notified of whether or not they were selected to receive a scholarship.  Successful applicants will be notified within 4-6 weeks after the application deadline; verification of acceptance will be required before any disbursement of funds occurs.  If the applicant is not selected, she is encouraged to reapply for future consideration.

 

WISE Women of Blair County is pleased to be able to provide deserving women with an opportunity to realize their dreams and to achieve the success they deserve.
