Adult Women's Scholarship Program

The Upper Keys Business & Professional Women (BPW) Adult Women's Scholarship Program is designed to help local women gain a professional edge through education and training.

Scholarship awards of up to $1500 per applicant may be used to cover the cost of classes and materials required to pursue certifications, training courses, higher- education degrees and CEU-associated professional licensing. Other educational expenses may also be eligible.

In selecting scholarship recipients, particular emphasis is given to women who:

  • demonstrate strong character and desire to have a positive impact on those around them,
  • are committed to collaboration with other women through active community involvement, and
  • have clear professional goals that make them strong role models for the current and next generation of working women.

Minimum requirements: 

  • High School diploma or GED
  • Upper Florida Keys resident for 3+ years 
  • 3+ years of post-high school work experience
  • Actively enrolled in an education or training program

Awards will be granted by Upper Keys BPW directly to the educational institution or reimbursed to the awardee with receipts. Funds must be disbursed within 6 months of the date awarded.

Eligible applications will also be considered by the Holly Given Fund for scholarships for career training and education.

All applicants will be informed of the Committee's decision within 6 weeks of deadlines.
