Women and girls interested in financial support for business or STEM education encouraged to apply online at missionsisterswhowork.org
DES MOINES, IOWA, UNITED STATES, November 14, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mission Sisters Who Work, a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit, provides women and girls with self-empowerment and emotional intelligence books and training, as well as scholarships needed to take charge of their lives so they can close their own gender, opportunity and pay gaps. While all benefit from the books and programming provided, scholarship opportunities are offered primarily to those with limited access to funding.
Currently, Mission Sisters is accepting scholarship applications from women and girls interested in attending business or STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics)-related programs. The nonprofit awards three categories of scholarships—1) scholarships for special training (including after-school and summer programs), 2) scholarships for certification programs and 3) scholarships for college (2-year and 4-year) education. Multiple scholarships may be awarded in each category. Scholarships range from $500 to $1,000 and are awarded throughout the year.
Mission Sisters Who Work scholarships are also pandemic-proof. “Many women seeking business and STEM education now face yet another barrier—Coronavirus,” said Cheryl O’Donoghue, co-founder of Mission Sisters Who Work. “Because they are deferring their education due to job loss, health concerns, family needs and other Coronavirus-related factors, we are holding scholarship awards for recipients for up to three years or longer if needed.”
Those interested in applying for any of Mission Sisters’ scholarships can learn more information and complete the online scholarship application at missionsisterswhowork.org.
