The WoR on the Glass Ceiling Scholarship is an annual contribution awarded to young women interested in Business, Marketing, or Communications careers. The ideal recipient is a driven, resourceful, and creative student unafraid to push boundaries in her classroom and within her craft. She understands the value of mentorship and the importance of giving back to her community. She’s a visionary who leverages her talent and resources to uplift her peers. She’s #goals.
WoR is awarding two (2) young women with a $5,000 scholarship to support their educational development, and to also encourage recipients to become philanthropic leaders on their college campus and within their communities. Scholarship recipients are also given the opportunity to participate in RedPeg’s summer internship program.
The Fine Print
If chosen, scholarship recipients will receive half of the award ($2,500) at the beginning of the semester. The second half ($2,500) of the scholarship will be provided at the end of the semester upon providing WoR with updates on the Pay It Forward Plan campus project.
Please Note: The success of the Pay it Forward Plan will not impact whether or not scholarship recipients receive the second half of the award, so long as each recipient is able to show that they did their due diligence to implement their plan within their college community. WoR will also be available to assist with troubleshooting and refining the Pay it Forward Plan if recipients need help throughout the semester.
In order to be considered, applicants must also submit their resume and a copy of their transcripts to Women@RedPeg.com or by mail to 727 N Washington Street, Alexandria, VA 22314.
