Following the astounding success of our Power of the Purse fundraiser, United Way is accepting scholarship applications to high school seniors and women living in Champaign County who are pursuing an education at Parkland Community College.

These scholarships, based on financial need, are designed to help applicants pursuing an education in the following areas: job training, technical or vocational certification, or an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. Funds will go towards educational or training fees, tuition, or book expenses.

We are thrilled that these scholarships are a direct result of Power of the Purse’s mission: to inspire, enhance, and strengthen the lives of women and children by raising funds for education, income and health. We cannot wait to see how efforts by women, for women, will continue to support our community.

We wish to thank all our supporters for their generosity and remind them that in addition to the Parkland College scholarships, Power of the Purse funds are also supporting the Emergency Shelter for Families in Champaign County.
