2021 Women-In-Transition Scholarships
Scholarships for Women-In-Transition (WIT) are awarded to women (over 21) in Pima or Santa Cruz counties who want to return to school to pursue a certificate or degree to increase job skills or acquire a new job skill.
Five Women-In-Transition (WIT) winners were selected earlier in April. All five can easily be described as resilient, tenacious, and persistent. Everyone would be inspired by these dynamic women if their stories could be heard firsthand. All have overcome difficult circumstances growing up or in their early adult lives, yet they exhibited determination, compassion, empathy and generosity toward others. Recipients are pursuing careers in nursing, law, and working with victims of domestic abuse. A video of the WIT and high school recipients was produced by Jim Burkstrand (thank you, Jim!!). The video link is also available on the Photo Gallery page.
2021 Scholarships for Females in the SUSD
Graduating high school girls planning on attending Community College, Trade or Technical School, as well a 4-year University, should apply. Applications will be available on January 11, 2021, at the Walden Grove and Sahuarita High School counseling offices as well as TWOQC’s Scholarship page (this page).
In 2020, TWOQC Scholarship Committee presented scholarships to female high school seniors in the Sahuarita Unified School District pursuing post-secondary study in a community college/vocational/trade or technical school. Scholarships for Women-In-Transition were also awarded to women over 21 in Pima or Santa Cruz counties who want to return to school to pursue a certificate or degree to increase job skills or acquire a new job skill. Through your support of The Women of Quail Creek Scholarship Fund this year’s selection committee, with immeasurable help from Jim Burkstrand and technology, interviewed and awarded our 2020 scholarships to 8 noteworthy and accomplished women.
