Youngstown Business Professional Women's Club offering scholarships for female students for Women's History Month
Youngstown Business and Professional Women's Club is proud to support the Dr. Anne McMahon Scholarship and the YBPW Centennial Scholarships for 2023.
The Dr. Anne McMahon Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship awarded to a female student attending Youngstown State University.
The YBPW Centennial Scholarship is one $2,000 scholarship awarded to a female student attending an accredited 2 or 4 year college, university or trade school in either Mahoning or Trumbull County.
YBPW's annual scholarship was officially named the Dr. Anne McMahon Scholarship around 2013 in recognition of Dr. Anne's commitment to connecting the classroom to business and honor her longtime involvement in YBPW.
In honor of YBPW's 100th anniversary in 2020, YPBW established a separate entity, the YBPW Centennial Scholarship Fund, to expand the reach of students for scholarship opportunities beyond YSU. Criteria for the scholarship was also expanded to beyond the traditional 4 year college student to include both technical school students and those pursing an associates degree.
"The vision of YBPW is the advancement and empowerment of women through mentorship and education. Awarding these scholarships ensures YBPW continues to live its vision and helps support the education of future female leaders of our valley," says Dee McFarland, Past President and YBPW Scholarship Committee Chair.
The deadline to apply for either scholarship has been extended to March 31, 2023. Applications for the scholarships are available on the YBPW website.
