EFWA is pleased to announce the 2017 Scholarship Recipients!
We had a record number of candidates this year with the new online application system. Thank you to everyone who submitted an application. We unfortunately cannot offer scholarships to all of you, but you should be proud of your achievements so far. The quality of applicants was fantastic and it made for some tough choices by the scholarship committee.

We have launched an online application system that is new in 2017. The application submission period is now live and we hope you will apply or share the information with those who may be eligible. All applications must be submitted through the online system for consideration. Applicants register for a free account, and then are able to log in, save work as they go, and complete the application in phases. There are no fees to submit an application. Recent generous estate donations have made this possible. We are excited about the ease of use and hope to receive more applications than ever before in 2017. Undergrad and Graduate applications are due by April 30, 2017 and Post-Graduate applications are due by May 15, 2017.

How many women in your company are in leadership positions? How many women do you know who are in leadership positions in other organizations? Are they from accounting and finance? Throughout my career and in my volunteer work I’ve been involved in a variety of leadership initiatives for both men and women of all ages and at various stages of their careers. Although women have made some headway in the last few years, more progress is necessary. How will this happen?
