The YWCA of Southern Arizona announced today that scholarships for an eight-week business planning course are now available for women veterans, and other "underserved" entrepreneurs in the community. 

The Women's Business Center of Southern Arizona, the Connie Hillman Family Foundation, as well as the U.S. Small Business Administration, are sponsoring the aid for the program, which focuses on businesses that are in the planning stages, young companies or already-established businesses that need a revamp, according a press release from the YWCA.

The program, offered by the WBC for more than two decades, covers market positioning, management, marketing—and other tools that are "critical to running a successful business." By the end of the course, the entrepreneurs have to complete an official business plan.

The course is offered in English and Spanish. 

Scholarship applicants should submit a 300-word statement by Jan. 18:
• What's your business/ business concept?
• How will the course help you reach your business goals?
• How would a scholarship impact your ability to take the course?
The English program begins on Jan. 19, and the Spanish program kicks off on Jan. 20., at the YWCA's Frances McClelland Community Center, 525 N. Bonita  Ave. The regular cost is $300 per person.

Scholarship submissions should be sent directly to Victor Mercado, YWCA deputy director, via email at vmercado at ywcatucson dot org. For more information on the course call, 884-7810, or visit ywcatucson.org
