It’s all about women helping women and “paying it forward”. The EWGA Foundation is the charitable arm of the EWGA, dedicated to developing and funding education and leadership programs for women of all ages.
As a 501(c)(3) charitable not-for-profit organization, the EWGA Foundation operates as a separate legal entity from the EWGA and is funded through donations, member contributions and various fundraising activities conducted throughout the year. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law. Consult your tax advisor for details.
The “Women on Par®” Scholarship Program, provided by the EWGA Foundation, was established in 2007 to provide financial assistance to “non-traditional” female students. These scholarships are intended for women, age 30 and older, who are attending a college or university for the first time or returning to school after an absence to complete their technical/vocational, Associate or Bachelors degree. The scholarships are designed to help these women get “on par,” or get an equal footing, with their peers, friends and other women who have had a chance to complete their college education.
New for 2017, Keiser University will offer a matching scholarship for "Women on Par" scholarship recipients who attend or transfer into any program at the University's residential Flagship Campus in West Palm Beach, FL. This opportunity, which is just miles from the EWGA association headquarters, extends scholarship recipients the chance to choose from a variety of degree programs at the baccalaureate and masters levels, in the heart of South Florida.
Since inception, the scholarship program has helped more than half a dozen women realize their dreams. In 2017, two (2) scholarships will be awarded: One (1) $1,000 Women On Par® scholarship and one (1) $500 Women On Par® scholarship.
