Each year Women’s Network awards two of our members with Greater Missouri Leadership Challenge scholarships. It’s time to apply for the Class of 2016, and possibly the Women’s Network scholarships for this outstanding program. Deadline for scholarship applications is September 2, 2016.

Challenge participants are from throughout Missouri – they are passionate about life, like Women’s Network members, and are committed to their careers, families, and communities. They are energetic and engaged, friendly, successful, willing to step out of their comfort zones at times, and approachable.

The Greater Missouri Leadership Challenge meets four times a year in different cities, for three days at a time, with interesting behind-the-scenes learning experiences in each location. Greater Missouri Leadership Challenge is a program that brings together smart, influential, successful women leaders from a variety of industries, small business, academia, government, and non-profit organizations to learn about issues facing us in Missouri.

Greater Missouri’s goal is to educate and inspire these women leaders to make a positive difference as individuals in helping to address problems each feels are important, as each participant becomes part of a powerful statewide network of leaders.

Past Women’s Network scholarship winners include Shatenita Horton, Jessica Macy, Melissa Smith, Carolyn Paris, Nancy Allison, Shelly DeVore, Tina Ehrhardt, Kate Grant and more.
