Phyllis Holt's intent for the Network of Executive Women scholarship program was in the spirit of helping educate those women who have little or no means by which to obtain an education. The goal of our scholarship awards is to help recipients complete enough education to find meaningful employment, 
re-enter the work force, or better their

present position.


The primary objective of the Network of Executive Women scholarship awards is to help women in need of financial assistance obtain undergraduate degrees, retraining, or certification. Undergraduate level scholarships are offered to women residing or attending school in the New Haven or Fairfield Counties of Connecticut and demonstrating financial need.

Applicants must be returning to, continuing, or commencing schooling or other specific training to further their education in order to enhance their job skills. Scholarships are awarded to women who, in our estimation, could best realize their potential by continuing their education.
