What is a WOW Scholarship?
Why Did We Create the Scholarship?
The Wisdom of Women are dedicated to building a strong community of professional women in the Hudson Valley by supporting their business ventures. The WOW Committee is made up of a group of strong and passionate women who spend the year fundraising for the WOW Scholarship.
Throughout the year, the WOW team raises money for the WOW Scholarship. Events like the annual unGALA and the Holiday Sip & Shop are dedicated to raising funds for the eventual winners of the scholarship. Attending these events is one way to help support the Wisdom of Women in this initiative.
