Scholarship Program

Wonder Women Society understands that having a dream isn't always enough. Sometimes, you need a little help to make your dream a reality. With that in mind, we are thrilled to partner with local businesses and individuals who want to support women in attaining their educational goals in pursuit of their dreams. If YOU would like to be a part of empowering and enabling women to reach their educational goals, please contact us to find out how we can work together to make that a reality for a woman today.

This year, we are honored to be able to increase the scholarships we're able to grant due to the generosity of the JBL Foundation partnering with us once again. JBL Foundation supports Wonder Women Society in the devoted memory of their late family member, Joanna, who had a passion to empower women to become their best selves through education. There are a total of seven (7) scholarships available for the 2024/25 academic year. Applications will be accepted from individuals OR professional organizations or non-profits that choose to nominate a worthy candidate. 

 

Eligibility:

Candidates must reside in BC.

Candidates must be attending or accepted to an accredited post-secondary institution in Canada. (Should you be awarded a scholarship, proof of enrollment must be provided before the scholarship is issued.) 

Candidates MUST submit the following to apply: (submissions that are missing any component will not qualify)

- A current photo

- A letter to the WWS Scholarship Committee which includes their introduction, their educational and professional goals, and their financial need. Proof of financial need or finance documents are not required. 

- At least one letter of reference. 

 

All applications will be reviewed by our scholarship committee. Scholarship winners will be contacted via email. 
 

Please note: WWS does not issue scholarships directly to individuals. All scholarships are paid directly to accredited post-secondary institutions after proof of enrollment is provided by students. 

Complete applications with all items listed above should be emailed to info@wonderwomensociety.com by May 15th, 2024.
