“To educate a woman is to educate her family, her society, and her country.” Those words provide power to the Scranton Women’s Leadership Center’s work of helping women live up to their full potential and leadership through education so that they may contribute to the advancement of their own communities and to the world. Through a generous contribution, the Scranton Women’s Leadership Center will support two United Board Faculty Scholars for the current academic year, enabling them to work toward advanced degrees at Asian universities.
“This gift reflects the shared interests of the United Board and the Scranton Women’s Leadership Center,” said United Board President Nancy E. Chapman. “Our organizations both have a long heritage of providing opportunities for women to pursue higher education. These scholarships will advance the professional credentials of two outstanding young educators and, ultimately, benefit a new generation of students when they return to their home institutions.”
The following individuals have been named the 2016-2017 United Board-Scranton Scholars:
