One hundred percent of the proceeds from the auction, nearly $2,000, go directly into the 2013 scholarship fund to be awarded to women who are pursuing their education in a business related field. If you are new to Women in Business and as a general review to members, below are the criteria and requirements for the annual scholarship program. Advertising and application distribution will begin in January, and applications are accepted through mid-March. If you know a woman who meets the criteria and requirements be sure to encourage them to apply. Last year Women in Business awarded $8,000 in scholarships, the largest accumulative dollar amount to date. Thank you to all members who donated items, those who attended the auction luncheon and who purchased items – this would not have been possible without your support.
