Women are making their mark in every facet of business and Western New England University alumnae are proud to be among them. Today more than 74.6 million women are an active part of the workforce. Generating $1.4 trillion in revenue, women own close to 10 million businesses. Through the $5,000 Women in Business Scholarship, Western New England is proud to inspire the next generation of alumnae who will lead the future of business.

For fall 2020, this $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to incoming female first-year students enrolling full-time at the College of Business.
