Scholarships for Non-Traditional Students
Join Business Women of Central MN Today! Business Women of Central Minnesota (BWCM) fosters the success of workingwomen by providing career advancement
resources, worklife strategies, and personal and professional networking connections. Most of our current members are working in business, and include fields of legal, printing, marketing,
finance, social services, and entrepreneurship.
We create social opportunities that help develop friendships and networks, which are created at our monthly meetings, Coffee Club gatherings, and other events that take place throughout the year.
Are you looking for a way to enhance your leadership skills? Opportunities in leadership positions help our members increase their professional skills. Monthly speakers focus on personal, professional development, and educational topics.
Our Annual Fundraiser held in August at Fairview Gardens, "An Evening in the Chef's Kitchen", provides funding for our Scholarship Program. Each year, Academic Scholarships are awarded from our Scholarship Fund to non-traditional female students in the Central Minnesota area who are pursuing post secondary certificates or degrees in a business or professional field.
Please join us at our next meeting!
