WEDC Foundation

Empowering women one degree at a time

Program Benefits

Flexible Financial Assistance (FFA)

What makes scholarships from the WEDC Foundation unique is that they aren't scholarships at all! Awarded FFA funds go directly to our Scholars to use where needed most. It's that simple!

Whatever life throws at you, our goal is to help assist so that you can stay focused on your studies.

One-on-One Mentoring

Our most popular benefit!

A professional woman, most often working in the Scholar's chosen career path, will be assigned when a Scholar starts the program. 

She will help guide you, answer questions and assist with resources, and might even remain a lifelong contact!

Scholar Development

The WEDC Foundation wants Scholars to succeed in school! We hold regular workshops to help Scholars navigate the school year and beyond.

From business etiquette to self-care, resume building to finances, these workshops provide you the tools and skills to become a confident valued employee and even a future leader.

Professional Networking

WEDC Foundation Mentor-Scholar pairs have the opportunity to attend special events and celebrations. This is a great chance for Scholars to test the skills learned in Scholar Development workshops. 

Use these experienced to connect and possibly meet professionals and potential employers in your field of study.
