Women of Colors, Inc. Scholarship

In categories: Scholarships

September 20, 2012

Women of Colors, Inc. (WOC) was founded in 1993 by a group of women that believed it would take a cooperative effort of women of all nationalities, ages and socioeconomic status to address issues plaguing the Saginaw Community. The founders believed that women should take a more active role in addressing issues of crime, blight and poverty. WOC began by providing support, community outreach services and facilitating discussions within the community. WOC’s mission evolved throughout the years to also include mentoring young girls and now includes mentoring both young men and women.

 
The Women of Colors, Inc. Scholarship will be awarded each year to a Great Empowering Motivational Sessions (GEMS) member that is an area high school senior actively involved in efforts to empower young women and in activities that address issues affecting young women in the Saginaw Community. GEMS program members will be given priority. If no GEMS members are high school seniors, applications will be accepted from non-GEMS applicants. The scholarship will be presented at the Annual Women of Colors Anniversary & Sweetheart Getaway Fundraiser to be held in March.
