Application forms are now available for the Businesswoman of the Year Scholarship for the fall 2013 semester. The deadline to apply is Friday, Aug. 30, 2013.
The program, which is sponsored by First Hawaiian Bank and Guam Business magazine, provides student scholarships at three higher education institutions in the Marianas Islands: University of Guam, Guam Community College, and the Northern Marianas College. Recent graduates from Guam’s and the CNMI’s high schools who are enrolling in the islands’ tertiary institutions are invited to apply as well.
The scholarships are intended to promote higher education by providing financial assistance for college students in their pursuit of professional careers, and are open to both full-time and part-time students. The scholarships will be awarded based on merit, eligibility, a written essay, and financial need.
Application forms may be picked up at the financial aid offices of UoG, GCC, and NMC, at the First Hawaiian Bank branches, and the Glimpses of Guam office; or may be downloaded from www.marianas.edu. The NMC Financial Aid Office is located in Building N at the As Terlaje campus and is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 4:30pm.
In addition, those interested in applying for the Businesswoman of the Year Scholarship for the spring 2014 semester can submit a completed application form by Friday, Jan. 31, 2014.
