Charlotte W. Newcombe Endowed Scholarship for Mature Women and Men

In order to better support Newcombe scholars and increase their completion of program goals, the Women’s Resources Program created a comprehensive support program that prioritizes success in three core areas: Completion, Community, and Career.
