The #Washburn Women’s Alliance is awarding more than $90,000 to 30 students for the 2013-14 academic year.— Washburn Foundation (@GivetoWashburn) May 14, 2013
Even more ways that Washburn is committed to providing access to quality education!
More than 200 people attended yesterday’s Washburn Women’s Alliance Annual Luncheon, and we couldn’t be more proud that they awarded more than $90,000 for the upcoming 2013-14 academic year!
In 1995, the University recognized a need to support female students who may not qualify for traditional scholarships. The Washburn Women’s Alliance was created by a group of women and an endowment set up by Ruth and John Stauffer to provide scholarships to single mothers here at Washburn. More than $600,000 has been awarded to women attending Washburn over the last 18 years, making it possible for single mothers to achieve their dreams and prepare themselves for careers and better provide for their children.
We are proud to offer this support to our community, and prouder still of the women who attend and graduate from Washburn with a quality education to propel them into the future. We say a huge thank you to Ruth and John Stauffer, the Washburn Women’s Alliance, and every single person who has supported any of our scholarship efforts. With your help, we have greatly enriched our campus community by continuing to provide quality education at an affordable price.
