Making a Difference for Working Women

Every woman has the potential to move ahead, but sometimes she needs extra encouragement and financial support for continuing education. The Arizona Business and Professional Women's Foundation was established in 1989 to further advance Arizona's working women through research, education, and scholarships. Our programs are designed to help women achieve economic freedom and more rewarding careers.

Giving to Change the Future

Twenty scholarships were awarded for the 2008/2009 school year. Six of the scholarships went to continuing students. Scholarship were awarded to student at the following community colleges: Phoenix, Gateway, Mohave, Paradise Valley, Rio Salado, Eastern Arizona, Estrella Mountain, Arizona Western, and Glendale. Two of the continuing students will be attending Arizona State University.

Thank you so much for awarding me a scholarship. I look forward to graduation as I continue working toward my associate's degree in the paralegal program at Pima Community College. Thank you for your faith in me...Catherine
