Connected Women of North Carolina Scholarship Opens
Connected Women of North Carolina (CWNC) was started by a group of women at the Research Triangle Park campus of Cisco Systems. Their goal is to empower women to network, create their future, and succeed. Carolina Career College aims to provide the training and guidance which inspires and prepares students to attain their goals.
With a set of goals that complement each other so well, CWNC and Carolina Career College began a fruitful partnership in 2015. This month, we are thrilled to announce that Connected Women of North Carolina will offer their largest scholarship to date. One incoming Carolina Career College student will win a $5,000 award towards her education.
Women who have enrolled at Carolina Career College come from many backgrounds. Karen P., for example, worked in the mental health field. She had reached a stage in her life where she was looking for a better work-home life balance. Karen heard of the amazing opportunities in Information Technology in the Raleigh-Durham area. She started working in the IT field a remarkable 21 days after starting classes, thanks to an on-campus career fair. She participates in CWNC events and has taken an active role in her own success.
Kate S. moved from retail job to retail job to pay the bills. In fact, she was working seven days a week between two jobs. Kate’s passion is technology, and Carolina Career College afforded her the opportunity to pursue it. One of her goals is to work at a gaming company. Kate was one of two winners of the CWNC 2016 mid-year scholarship, which included a 1-year student membership to Connected Women of North Carolina, $150 in gas cards, and a Microsoft Office course from National Business Training.
Are you a woman looking to enter or advance in the Information Technology field? You could be eligible to win $5,000 towards your education at Carolina Career College. Act soon, because the deadline to apply is December 1st.
