About BWN Lifelong Learner Scholarship
As the Business Women's Network (BWN) of Howard County, we promote and support professional women in their careers as executives, business owners, and leaders. We are a vibrant network of women who have a significant impact on the business environment in Howard County.
As part of our mission to support women, we established the Life-Long Learner Scholarship Program in 2000. To date, we have awarded over $80,000 in Scholarships. Our scholarships recipients have ranged from established career women who need additional education to reach the next level to those embarking on new careers. Other recipients had been out of the work force for several years raising children or caring for elderly parents and need to brush up on old skills or learn new ones to enter the job market successfully. Each BWN Scholarship recipient has demonstrated leadership and commitment in her community and has a unique story to tell.
Each year, our goal is to assist women with $1,500 scholarships to pursue education programs, such as degrees, technical certifications, or other training programs instrumental to advance their careers and impact our community.
