Womens Resource Center 2019 Scholarship Recipient
WRC provides over $28k in scholarships to local women
Congratulations, 2019 Scholarship Recipients!
The Women’s Resource offers annual Educational Scholarships to recognize, reward, and encourage female students who are pursuing a higher level of education to reach a realistic goal in preparation for employment, self-sufficiency, and advancement in the community. This year, $28,000 in scholarships were awarded, each of 28 recipients receiving a $1,000 award.
64% of recipients have dependent children living at home; 93% are single, divorced, or widowed; and 89% are below the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) level. Of that, 39% live in Manatee County, 64% live in Sarasota County, and 61% are seeking a degree in health care.
On Sunday, May 19th, the Women’s Resource Center held the Scholarship Award ceremony at the Sarasota Center. The scholarship recipients who were selected demonstrated a high level of commitment and determination to their educational goals. These women have also agreed to participate in The Women’s Resource Center’s mentorship program, a new initiative in 2019 to encourage engagement with WRC programs and services throughout these students’ journey to empowerment through education.
