Annual scholarships range from $2,500 to $10,000 and are given to women based on academic excellence, financial need, community service and a demonstrated interest and involvement in communications. Since the Foundation’s formal establishment in 2000, it has issued close to $1 million in scholarship support. The application process will begin in November.
