Who among us knows a courageous woman working at least 40 hours a week, raising a family, volunteering in our community, and attending night classes on top of it all? She is anyone: your co-worker…mother… As most of us may wonder, “How does she DO it? And how can I help?”

Here is your opportunity!  Distribute this flyer  to any woman you know that qualifies.

Every spring, RNPW offers educational scholarships to local women seeking to advance their careers. Our recipients are 23 years of age or older and they must use the funds toward a degreed program at an accredited institution such as Rock Valley College, Rockford Business College, NIU, or others.

Application instructions can be found by clicking RNPW Scholarship Application Instructions.

The deadline for the application is March 1.
