Queen Anne’s County CWN is an organization of professional women that seeks to facilitate enrichment and professional growth through communication and support while stimulating business opportunities for professional women in the community. The organization’s main philanthropy is providing scholarships for women 21 years of age and older who live in the County and are returning to school in pursuit of college degrees. CWN firmly believes in helping women improve their circumstances and their financial futures through higher education, therefore, the organization seeks scholarship applicants who are reentering college or returning to the job market.
For more information about CWN scholarship opportunities or to obtain an application form, visit their website at www.chesapeakewomensnetwork.org. The deadline for application submission is April 19th.
