Scholarship for Women by Women

The Women’s Network of Collier County (WNOCC) is committed to empowering women and what a better way to do this than by taking action!

We offer an education based Scholarship allowing for the honoree to have more freedom to learn while lifting some of the financial obligation. Women today are amazing in their scope and variety, because as a woman you are no longer locked into any stereotypical idea of what you should do for the rest of your life. Fifty years ago a woman did not have many choices. Not today!

At the WNOCC, we believe in a diverse offering of choices when it comes to career fields – perhaps some you haven’t even thought of yet – and we hope that you embark on your educational journey with support for Women by Women!
