WIB Scholarship Program

Every year Woman In Business awards four-$500 scholarships to deserving area high school seniors in support of their continuing education. In 2018, Woman In Business added a fifth scholarship award endowed by the family of WIB Founder Judith Jaeger, in her memory. The Judith A. Jaeger Memorial Scholarship, which comes with a $1000 award, is presented to the top candidate among the applicants selected for scholarship prizes. Over the last 30 years, Woman In Business has awarded over $50,000 in scholarship prizes to over 100 deserving students, who go on to do amazing things with their education and life.

Scholarship applications are open to any high school senior in our region by completing a form made available in their Guidance Office and submitting an essay. A special Scholarship Review Committee comprised of Board members and member volunteers, reviews all applications and selects award recipients. On average, WIB receives more than 50 applicants for consideration from Tantasqua High School, Shepard Hill High School, and BayPath Technical High School.

Throughout the year, WIB provides Members and guests with an opportunity to contribute to our Scholarship Fund through raffles at monthly meetings and at an annual fundraising event showcasing student performances. This special event is generously supported by business sponsors and friends.

Scholarship awards are announced and presented at WIB’s annual June luncheon, held the second Wednesday of that month. This special meeting provides members and scholarship sponsors the opportunity to meet scholarship recipients and celebrate their success.
