Career Women’s Network Scholarship Fund
Career Women’s Network of Macon brings together women of achievement and influence to network ideas, experiences, and resources, and to solidify relationships that can enhance the image and effectiveness of women. The organization promotes and encourages members to become effective and visible community leaders, and it supports continuing education and professional development of women.
Through an endowed scholarship fund at the Community Foundation of Central Georgia, CWN awards scholarships annually to non-traditional female students in the central Georgia region who are enrolled in higher education.
These scholarships provide more than just financial aid. It is a success experience for the recipient, who also receives academic recognition as a scholarship winner. In contributing to her education, the money helps now and later, opening the door to a better income and quality of life for herself and her family. Ultimately, the community benefits from her opportunity for further education as she becomes a successful, productive citizen.
“The rewards of helping other women succeed rebound tenfold on the members of the Career Women’s Network,” said Meg Lipper, a past President. “We want to be an inspiration to them, and they inspire us by their courage and determination.”
