Now accepting applications for the 2017 Women in Business Scholarship
“Why this scholarship?”
Women make up nearly half of the global workforce; however, gender equality isn’t a reality in the corporate or entrepreneur worlds. To encourage women to pursue education and careers in business and entrepreneurship, Davis Industries has established the Kai Davis Women in Business Scholarship. One (1) scholarship of $500 is awarded annually.
“Who is eligible for this scholarship?”
Women of any age, pursuing an accredited business or business-related program who demonstrate outstanding potential in the field, are eligible and encouraged to apply.
Applicants must meet the following minimum requirements:
- Be undertaking a business and/or business-related program at an accredited university/college/institute.
- Enrolled in at least the second year of an undergraduate program through the final year of a Master’s program at the time the application is submitted (applicants must still be attending school to receive this award).
- Must submit verification of current enrollment with application materials.
- Demonstrated initiative, ambition and commitment to pursuing a career in business.
“What’s included in the scholarship?”
If selected, you’ll receive a $500 cash stipend. You can use this however you’d like in the pursuit of your education.
“Why did you create this scholarship?”
While in college, I received a number of scholarships that helped me focus on pursuing my education. In turn, I created this scholarship to provide a resource and path for current students to further their study — either as part of the classroom or independently.
