CEDAR CITY – Women in Business of the Cedar City Chamber of Commerce is inviting women to apply for this year’s WIB Scholarship Program for the 2014-2015 school year, applications must be received by the organization by April 1.
Last year Women in Business awarded 10 scholarships, ranging from $250 to $1,000, to Iron County high school seniors and nontraditional women students, 25 and older who were entering or re-entering a certificate or undergraduate program at an accredited Iron County university, college, or trade school.
This year the Women in Business organization has the opportunity to award even more scholarship funds due to the generous support of the community during their fundraising events at the Pumpkin Festival and more recent Women’s Expo.
Scholarships may be used toward tuition, fees, and books. Scholarships are available for female seniors currently attending an Iron County high school and for women 25 and older.Applicants of all eligible ages must be women who plan to attend an accredited Iron County university, college or trade school for the 2014 – 2015 school year to prepare to enter the workforce or further their career. They must be planning to attend on at least a half-time basis (minimum six credit hours).
“This year we would also like to award a larger number of scholarships to nontraditional women students, 25 years or older,” WIB executive board member Cindy Baldwin said. “We want to encourage women that this is an opportunity for women from all walks of life and we want to emphasize that they don’t have to be business major to get this scholarship. They can go into any field of study to receive a scholarship.”
Scholarship applications will be accepted until April 1 at the Cedar City Chamber of Commerce office. Applications are available at the chamber office located at 77 North Main and attached here: Women in Business 2014 Scholarship Application.
