About the WOA Fundraiser

The Berkshire Business & Professional Women's Organization has been awarding career advancement scholarships to working women since the early 1990's. The funds awarded can be used for any necessity that the awardee may have to help them in the educational endeavor such as uniforms, books, tuition or computer costs.

In the last two years, $12,000 and $11,500 were awarded and the Woman of Achievement is the major fundraiser for this event. The applications are available in the Spring with a deadline of July 1 and the awards are presented at the organization's September meeting. Candidates have to be at least 25 and have to live in and work either part-time or full-time in Berkshire County.
