To be considered for the scholarship program, applicants must be females at least 21 years of age and citizens of the United States, having legal residence in Queen Anne’s County. In addition, applicants must be high school graduates or have earned a GED; they must be officially accepted (or in the acceptance process) into an accredited program or certificate program at a United States college or university; they must carry a minimum of 3 credits per semester; and they cannot be in the process of earning a doctoral-level degree such as a PhD, MD, DDS, DVM or JD. Applicants must demonstrate financial needs and clear career goals and objectives.

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.
