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. A woman who receives a WINGS scholarship has a clear educational and career plan; she has proven her ability to accomplish not only academic work but to do well in other facets of life. Her own personal vision is so strong that people cannot help but want to support her in it.

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 can bring to the recipients plan for herself are assigned as mentors to every WINGS recipient. What these mentors give is their own experience, perspectives, counsel, networks, and personal support - what they give is themselves. Throughout the year, recipients meet with their mentors and attendance is required at the WINGS scholarship luncheon which honors the recipients and graduates.

Eligible applicants will be considered who meet the following criteria:

*        Have a clear sense for what they want to achieve through education and a plan for doing it.

*        Have successfully completed some post-high school studies with a grade-point average of 2.5 whether they are currently enrolled or not.

*        Have shown not only in their studies but in other ways that they are serious about their personal and career goals.

*        Are U.S. citizens

*        Are at least 25 years old.

*        Meet eligibility criteria to receive financial aid

*        Are the major source of financial support for themselves and/or their children, or need retraining in order to achieve higher earnings or greater financial security.

If you are interested in applying for this wonderful scholarship opportunity for the upcoming 2010-2011 school year, please download and complete the application and three references available through the CPCC Financial Aid website under "New Scholarship Listings".
