Applications for the 2018 POWER Scholarship will be accepted through Dec. 20, according to State Rep. Holli Sullivan (R-Evansville).
POWER is the General Assembly’s caucus primarily for women legislators interested in improving the quality of life for Hoosier residents.
Sullivan said the scholarship is for non-traditional female students whose education was delayed or interrupted. The organization is also placing a high priority on women who give back to their communities and whose goals and desires for education align with their passions.
“POWER raises funds for these scholarships to help lessen the financial burden those who are returning to school or seeking advancement in their careers,” said Sullivan, who is serving as the president of POWER. “Stay-at-home moms entering the workplace could also benefit from this program. We hope to encourage more community-minded women to increase their level of education and possibly move into public service.”
There will be $750 scholarships awarded to 18 women across the state, two women in each of Indiana’s nine congressional districts.
