[Cpcommunicator] WINGS Scholarship opportunity for women

>From Shane Jeter


The WINGS Scholarship--Women Initiating and Nurturing Growth Through
Scholarships--is a scholarship program for women at Charlotte-area
colleges and universities, women who are 25 or older who need help
overcoming the obstacles that stand in the way of achieving their goals.

The WINGS Scholarship provides financial support but also offers
something potentially even more valuable. Two or more seasoned, active,
executive or professional women chosen for the specific expertise they

and attendance is required at the WINGS scholarship luncheon which
honors the recipients and graduates.
