The YWCA of the Niagara Frontier will be providing YWCA Munk/Human scholarships for Niagara County women returning to secondary education effective for the fall 2017 semester.
To be eligible, potential recipients must meet the following criteria:
•Students will be selected by the YWCA of the Niagara Frontier Munk/Human memorial scholarships trust committee, which will be comprised of at least three members, including the chair.
•The committee will make a selection of a nontraditional female student pursuing a higher education with ties to Niagara County. The committee will use the National Center for Educational Statistics' definition of a nontraditional student (including, but not limited to, full-time or part-time students).
•Students pursuing any higher-education following high school or achievement of a GED will be considered for the award. This includes, but is not limited to, students pursuing an undergraduate, graduate or associated degree, as well as accreditation and certification programs.
