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.

Women's Leadership Program/Women’s Resources Award

The Women’s Leadership Program is designed to help women become leaders in their chosen professions. It is a retention program, designed to help female students complete their academic goals and empower other women. In return for committing volunteer hours to the Center for Student Diversity, participants receive leadership training, assist in planning larger events for the campus community, and receive experience that can enhance their ability to be competitive in the job market after graduation.

The program is open to all undergraduate female and transbodied women students. The program also provides financial assistance in conjunction with the Women’s Resources Award. The Associate Director of Women’s Resources in the Center for Student Diversity manages both the program and the Women’s Resources Award.

The Women's Resources Award accepts applications each May for the following school year.  Students who already receive scholarships from the Center for Student Diversity, such as the Charlotte Newcombe Scholarship for Mature Women and Men or the Community Enrichment & Enhancement Partnership Award (CEEP), are not eligible for this scholarship. 

The application process for the 2013-2014 school year is now closed. Applications are generally acccepted in May for the following school year.
