Applications sought for Women's Club scholarship

CROSSVILLE — The Upper Cumberland Women’s Club membership are women professionals, small business owners and retirees who meet every other month throughout the year at a variety of destinations across the Upper Cumberland region. The intent is to inspire, motivate and educate one another through networking, listening to guest speakers, and encouraging one another and the next generation of women through mentorship and a scholarship program. 
It’s at this time each year the call goes out for submissions of scholarship applicants for the $1,000 scholarship by the paid membership of the group. (You don’t have to be a paid member to attend the meetings, but to submit someone for the scholarship process you do. More information on membership is below.) Kristina Denysova was the 2012 recipient of a $1,000 scholarship that has helped her further her education and pursue her dreams. Kristina is formerly of the Ukraine and came to Tennessee Technology University to pursue a degree in International Tourism Marketing. 
The scholarship committee has finalized the application and rules for 2013. You can find more information and download the application from the scholarship link on the website. Remember, nominations can only be submitted by paid members. So, if you aren't a member or haven't paid your dues for 2013, there's still time to do so. The deadline is September 16 and the winner will be announced at the October 22 luncheon. The award amount is still to be determined and will depend on the funding available at the time of the award. In addition, if you or your company would like to donate an additional amount specifically for this project, it would be greatly appreciated. By doing so, you will be recognized in the press release about the award and given the opportunity to be included in the picture to be submitted with the winner. The donation is also tax deductible. Sponsors above membership for the 2012 award were Blue Coast Burrito, Blue Heron Studios, Business Cumberland, Laurel Fork Rustic Retreat, and Red Cross/Jean Ann Mayberry with the Girls’ Night Out Event.
