Whatcom Women in Business Scholarships

Each year Whatcom Women in Business raises money to give scholarships to women entering higher education, including but not limited to technical or trade school, beauty school, community college or university. We look for women that are committed to the four core values of WWIB: leadership, professionalism, mentoring and community, as well as financial need.

In 2020, WWIB was able to give five scholarships valued at $5,000 each. The recipients were incredibly grateful for the financial assistance, which helps them pursue their dreams of higher education. This year, the need is greater than usual, as college students will have a difficult time finding part-time work to help pay for their tuition, books, and other expenses. We hope that our community will come together and help us raise money for next year’s scholarships by joining this year’s online auction and bidding on the fantastic items available.
