Tell Kick-Ass Female High School Seniors to Apply for this Scholarship

Posted By on Fri, Jan 15, 2016 at 11:30 AM

Each year our sister paper Inside Tucson Business sets out to celebrate Tucson's Women of Influence. A big part of that is looking to the future. While nominations for the WOI awards are now closed, ITB is still taking applications for the "Future Leaders Award." 

The Future Leaders Award is a $1,000 scholarship that will be awarded to two female high school seniors—young women who see themselves becoming influential women.

Publisher Steve Pope has this to say about the award:
In today's fast moving and internationally competitive environment, no community can keep up unless all the talent the community has to offer is put into play. The challenges are just too great to face with one arm tied behind our back. Making sure we nurture the talent of our youth of all genders and races is a fundamental requirement for Tucson to thrive as we all want and need. This scholarship is a recognition of that simple truth. 
The details are outlined here, and the deadline is Feb. 19. Good luck, ladies! You are going to be great.
