Scholarship Feature: Midland Business and Professional Women’s Club

July 21st, 2011 by admin

A Texas organization is throwing their support behind women who are trying to get back on track with education.

The Midland Business and Professional Women’s Club is offering four $500 scholarships each semester for women 25 years old and older who enroll in an accredited Texas school.

“Sometimes women don’t go back to school because they can’t pay and that shouldn’t be the situation,” President Glenda Knox told The Midland Reporter-Telegram.

In addition to meeting the age, gender and state requirements, those interested also must:

  • Be a high school graduate or GED recipient
  • Take at least six credit hours each semester
  • Demonstrate financial need
  • Submit a completed application and two reference letters
  • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher
  • Submit copies of expense receipts, their course schedule and (if applicable) their prior semester’s transcript

It’s preferred that the scholarship money is used directly for education expenses – books, tuition, etc. – but, unlike some other scholarships, they recognize that award winners may need the money for other related expenses, like childcare or transportation.

The Midland Business and Professional Women’s Club is a regional organization that focuses on representing women’s equality in the workplace. The application for their scholarship can be found on their official site.
