Wesleyan College offering two full-ride scholarships to local women

Wesleyan College is offering two full-tuition graduate program scholarships for Middle Georgia women through its Working Warriors initiative. Research suggests that non-traditional, female college students are among the most impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic due to work life imbalances such as childcare, eldercare, and the need to maintain daily family and work duties.

In response to the pandemic and its impact on these women, we have taken this as an opportunity to launch a new scholarship program: Wesleyan Working Warriors. Through this program, Wesleyan will award scholarships to women who want to go back to school to finish a previously started master’s degree or embark on their journey of graduate school.

Wesleyan College President Meaghan Blight, headed the Working Warriors initiative after noticing a gap in the current educational enrollment system - working women.

“Working Warriors is aimed to provide flexible learning options for women who have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, who come from marginalized backgrounds, or who simply want to reskill and retool to improve their lives and the lives of their families.”

This scholarship opportunity is open to Middle Georgia women residing in any of the following counties: Bibb, Monroe, Crawford, Peach, Houston, Twiggs and Jones. Preference will be given to applicants of Bibb County. Women interested in any of Wesleyan’s graduate programs including Business Administration, Elementary Education, Music, Nonprofit Management or Industrial-Organizational Psychology can apply for this program.

Applications will remain open until July 1. For more information on the scholarship requirements, visit:
