"As a 2012 recipient of BWN's scholarship, I was able to invest in my professional development by enrolling in the Leadership Howard County program. Through both organizations I expanded my network, improved my leadership skills and build lifetime relationships. However, none of this would have not been possible if it weren't for the opportunity provided by BWN's Lifelong Learner Scholarship."

"The BWN Scholarship I received jump started my desire to go back to school and finish my Bachelors of Business Management. I was able to complete college, expand my career with my current company and grow in the Banking and Financial Industry. Being a BWN Scholarship winner gave me the encouragement from other women in my community to take on college full force and finish strong. The atmosphere was so inspiring when I received the award."
