Each year the Cape Ann Chamber’s Businesswomen’s Committee awards the Carolyn O’Connor Scholarship to a woman who is going back to school to better herself/her circumstances. Someone who perhaps had to stop pursuing her career due to unforeseen or unfortunate circumstances, or who simply has struggle with the means to attend college.
To qualify for the scholarship the applicant must have graduated from High School or earned a GED.
We are looking for women who are seeking education or training, to better their life situation and further their career.
This year the committee has announced that they will be awarding two $1,500 Scholarships (in the past it has been one, $1,250 award).
Applications are now available HERE. The deadline for the applications to be returned to the Chamber is September 1, 2019.
