WISE Women of Blair County (WWBC) is awarding one or more  scholarships up to $12,000 to deserving women of Blair County who are pursuing post-secondary education and who have overcome adversity in their lives.  The mission of WWBC is to empower women and eliminate racism through collaboration, service, and education.  We are fulfilling our mission by providing scholarships, offering grants, and recognizing outstanding women in our community during our annual Tribute awards event.

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.
