Humanitarian nonprofit provides training, certification, and college scholarships for women ready to start or further their business or STEM careers

Enlarging our scholarship program so we can reach in and provide a hand up to those who will benefit most, aligns with our mission to serve even more.”

— Cheryl O'Donoghue, Co-Founder & President, Mission Sisters Who Work

DES MOINES, IA, UNITED STATES, January 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — “As we start a new decade of giving, we want to expand our impact on the lives of women and girls who are ready to start or further their business or STEM careers,” says Cheryl O’Donoghue, co-founder and president of Mission Sisters Who Work. “Enlarging our scholarship program so we can reach in and provide a hand up to those who will benefit most, aligns with our mission to serve even more.”

Mission Sisters Who Work, a 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit established in 2018, provides women self-empowerment and emotional intelligence books and programming, as well as scholarships needed to take charge of their lives so they can close their own gender, opportunity, and pay gaps. While all women benefit from the books and programming provided, scholarship opportunities are offered primarily to those from underprivileged communities with limited access to funds.

Scholarships are funded by general donations received by the organization, as well as royalties from O’Donoghue’s books and a portion of proceeds from her for-profit business—Emotional Intelligence Leadership Training Solutions.

Currently, Mission Sisters awards three categories of scholarships. Multiple scholarships may be awarded in each category listed below. The organization also offers named scholarships, providing sponsorship opportunity for individual donors (please contact the organization for more details.)

Those interested in applying can complete the online scholarship application at missionsisterswhowork.org. For specific scholarship details, read on.
