Scholarship candidates for this intensive training program are talented and promising low-income or at risk immigrant, refugee or American-born women, who need business knowledge, mentoring and support network to start up a small business and market their products or services.
Each student has to bring proof at the interview of their low-income status (IRS 1040 Form or W2 from previous year) to demonstrate their need.
If you do not feel you qualify under EWI’s low-income eligibility requirements but feel you would still benefit from our program, please fill out the training application. We will evaluate your needs and may consider you for a partial merit scholarship.
Strong scholarship candidates have:
- A clear business or social venture idea.
- A product or service ready for the market.
- The energy, passion, and commitment to lead and succeed.
- The ability and willingness to do home study, work independently and complete all assignments.
- The capacity to build a business plan and develop a marketable product or service.
- The determination to attend all 15 evening classes, 3 business boot camps, and final graduation reception and business showcase and launch.
EWI may be able to provide partial merit scholarships to highly talented women who do not meet the scholarship eligibility requirements, but could greatly benefit from this program.
