South Bay Women’s Network (SBWN) awarded (11) scholarships of $500 each this year to Cuesta College re-entry female students. 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 the Garden Party Scholarship Benefit, SLO Witches Paddle and generous donations from SBWN members and supporters.
Presentation of our Scholarship winners was held on December 14, 2021 at The Savory Palette Wine Bar in Morro Bay.
