Women-focused Scholarship Opportunity

Womenetics and Discover Financial Services are offering five undergraduates a total of $15,000 through the Advancing Aspirations Global Scholarship (AAGS). With this award-winning essay competition, Womenetics and Discover encourage students to research and create awareness about global issues that affect women in business.

In addition to the prize money, the five finalists will be invited on an expense-paid trip to share their insights at the 2014 Global Women’s Initiative – where the grand prize winner will be announced – in Chicago on Nov. 12. Finalists will also be featured on Womenetics.com, named one of Forbes top 100 websites for women for 3 consecutive years.

The 2014 Global Women’s Initiative will convene international thought leaders to explore Women as the Competitive Advantage: Redefining a Workplace that Works for Women and Men. The conference will address the need to create a workplace that more effectively aligns with the lives of today’s workforce so organizations are better able to harness diverse talent for their future success – particularly women.

Corresponding with that theme, students can choose from essay prompts about:
·         Employee engagement in a world of competing demands
·         Confidence and risk
·         Men as catalysts for change
·         Work environment & productivity

The competition is open to all undergraduates currently enrolled at accredited colleges and universities, and we hope you will encourage potentially interested students to apply.

Deadline for entries is July 25.
