Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for education and women's issues. The foundation is currently funding programs in the areas of: girls in engineering, gender/ women's studies, women in public policy, media and digital literacy, women re-entering the workforce, and transitional housing and legal services programs for survivors of domestic violence. Scholarships also to exceptional, highly motivated, underprivileged women attending Cabrillo, Hartnell or Monterey Peninsula College with a strong potential for making a difference in their community. Each year, the program provides 3 students from the participating community colleges a $20,000 scholarship, to be distributed over 2 years. Students must be enrolled in one of these three community colleges and dedicated to enrolling in and completing their junior and senior years of their college education as full-time students at a University of California campus. Scholarship candidates must be nominated by the president of their respective community college.
