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 an educational scholarship to a local woman seeking to advance her career. Recipients are 23 years of age or older and must use the funds toward a degreed program at an accredited institution such as Rock Valley College, Northern Illinois University, Rockford University, or others.
