2013 – 2014 Fresh Start Scholarship

The Fresh Start Scholarship Foundation, Inc. is pleased to announce the continuation of the Fresh Start Scholarship.

Our scholarship is specifically designed for women who have interrupted their education for various reasons and now seek to return to school to better their status and their opportunities. The Fresh Start Scholarship Foundation is the charitable arm of Wilmington Women in Business, Inc. (WWB).

We award annual scholarships based on need and provide mentoring support through WWB members. Candidates must be enrolled in a two or four year degree program at an accredited Delaware institute of higher learning. Since its inception in 1996, the foundation has awarded close to $500,000 in scholarships to over 125 women who are achieving their goals. Each of these recipients is unique – her goals, her skills, her dreams.

The Fresh Start Scholarship Foundation has funds available to award scholarships to deserving women in financial need for academic year 2013-2014. There are scholarship funds available to students in ALL majors.

We ask that candidates be recommended by a social service agency or by a college or university. The Fresh Start Scholarship Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors, based upon the applications received, will make all decisions regarding the recipients and the amounts of the awards.

A copy of the scholarship application is attached (please feel free to duplicate/forward the application for multiple candidates). The application is also available online at
