State Rep. Holli Sullivan (R-Evansville) encourages non-traditional female students to apply for the POWER Caucus Scholarship to further their education and career aspirations.
Women who are returning to school after a hiatus, changing careers, and seeking advancement in their careers or work lives, as well as stay-at-home moms entering the workplace who are in need of additional education and training, can earn a scholarship of $750 to put toward their education.
“Through this scholarship, non-traditional female students can receive financial help as they further their education,” Sullivan said. “Obtaining higher education credentials can open doors and we want hard-working Hoosiers to have opportunities to meet their career goals and aspirations, regardless of their age, family structure or previous work experience.”
Sullivan said there will be 18 scholarships awarded – two per congressional district. Scholarships are given to women who are residents of the state of Indiana and who are pursuing their educational endeavors in the state.
The primary selection criteria to be used by the committee selecting the scholarship winners will be financial need, personal vision, service to the community and future plans.
Scholarships will be awarded at a ceremony in February. To fill out an application, go to www.inpowercaucus.org/powerscholarship/. The application deadline is October 1.
