Potential recipients either submitted an application themselves or were nominated, and each was required to be a female Cuesta College re-entry student, defined in the educational system as one who attends college following an interruption in their post-high school education. Funds for these scholarships were raised through fundraising and generous donations from Corporate Sponsors and SBWN members.
To all of the wonderful women of the South Bay Women’s Network. Thank you so much for the scholarship. It will really help as I make this last push through nursing school. I look forward to being done, having a good job, being financially independent and being able to contribute to help others reach their goals!I think being introduced and included into this “Network” is also a gift. I look forward to getting to know you all better and to continue to empower women and to be inspired by other women. – Thank you, Katie Bariel
