As a university professor for nearly two decades, awarding scholarships and awards was definitely one of the best parts of the job. Now I’m honored to serve on the panel of judges for Talbots Charitable Foundation Scholarship Program.
The Talbots Scholarship program is changing women’s lives by empowering them to fulfill their dreams. Since 1997, it has supported women who are ready to start a new chapter in their lives by granting scholarships for a college education later in life. Recipients have embodied courage, conviction, and an insatiable entrepreneurial spirit.
Many applicants come from disadvantaged backgrounds, or have overcome personal hardships and are looking to turn their lives in a new direction. Among past recipients–a lawyer, human rights activist, and substance abuse counselor.
So let’s spread the word!
This year Talbots will be awarding $200,000 in scholarships, including seventeen $10,000 awards and one $30,000 Nancy Talbots Scholarship.
Applications are due by January 3, 2012. Click here to apply.
