Giving to Change the Future

AZBPW Scholarship — Change Your Future


Giving to Change the Future

Fifteen scholarships were awarded for the 2015-2016 school year to students who attended community colleges around the state of Arizona. Eight of the scholarships went to continuing students.

Thank you so much for awarding me a scholarship. I look forward to graduation as I continue working toward my associate's degree in the paralegal program at Pima Community College. Thank you for your faith in me...Catherine

A scholarship committee made up of trustees and community volunteers serves in facilitating the award process. While we derive funds from Arizona BPW member support and partnerships with corporation, and other foundations, we also encourage you to join us in our efforts to change the future. The Arizona BPW Foundation is an affiliate of the BPW/AZ Federation and the BPW/USA Foundation, a national organization of working women.

Making a Difference for Working Women

Every woman has the potential to move ahead, but sometimes she needs extra encouragement and financial support for continuing education. The Arizona Business and Professional Women's Foundation was established in 1989 to further advance Arizona's working women through research, education, and scholarships. Our programs are designed to help women achieve economic freedom and more rewarding careers.
