Women of Color Scholarship Luncheon
Please consider attending the 2016 Villanova University Women of Color Scholarship Luncheon on Friday, April 29, 2016.
During the winter of 2002, two colleagues – Nancy C. Lee and Linda Coleman saw the need to create a scholarship for underrepresented women on Villanova’s campus. This scholarship was designed to aid them with college expenses. The Committee has since expanded as well as the number of scholarships given and its attendees.
Recipients of the scholarship are nominated based on the following:
•Be involved in the Villanova Community
•Be in good academic and disciplinary standing
•Must have a financial need
•Committed to service
Proceeds will be used for a scholarship for a deserving underrepresented Villanova female student.
