This Year’s Scholarship Theme: ACTION!

The Scholarship was created to help empower women through education.  It is awarded twice a year and the applications for the Fall/Winter semester of 2016 are currently being accepted.  The focus of the Scholarship for this award period is: ACTION!

Many of us are filled with wanderlust and dreams.  Turning those dreams into reality as part of empowerment requires ownership, accountability, and responsibility.  Someone may encourage and help you as you work towards your goals.  But they cannot accomplish the goals for you.  YOU must take ownership and accept the responsibility for the task at hand.

Dreaming is easy… but ACTION is always required.

  • Share an example of how you or another woman in your life have accepted ownership and responsibility for a challenging situation and then taken ACTION to ensure a positive outcome.
  • How will you teach others in your circle of influence to take a proactive approach to life in order to live their dreams?
