Women's Business Council is committed to supporting the growth and development of our members and young women in our community. In support of this commitment, WBC offers two scholarships:
The Women’s Business Council (WBC) Scholarship Fund was established in 1985. It was named the Ruth B. Jones Scholarship Fund in 1987 in recognition of Mrs. Ruth B. Jones, an outstanding member of the local business community.
The Ruth B. Jones Scholarship Fund is available to assist WBC members in continuing their education to either build upon their skills for a present career or to pursue a new career. WBC members may also apply for a scholarship to attend career-related conferences, seminars and workshops.
Congratulations to our Jump Start Scholarship recipients MacIayne Taylor, St. Joseph and Elizabeth Schuluter, St. Joseph. Each of these young ladies will receive a $500 scholarship to pursue their education.
Thank you to the forty-one young ladies who applied for this scholarship. Our decision was a tough one, as each and every one of you are poised for great success. Best wishes!
