Since 2006, the Women’s Action Network has awarded the Audrey Malling Adult Scholarship in honor of one of the original founders of the Women’s Action Network.
Audrey Malling’s commitment to empowering women have left an indelible mark on our network and the community as a whole. In recognition of her extraordinary contributions, WAN members are proud to offer a $500 scholarship to support adult female learners pursuing their educational dreams.
Former winners have utilized the funds to help pay for college classes to pursue a nursing degree at Montcalm Community College. Others have used the scholarship to apply toward professional development through their employer. The scholarship nominating committee looks for applicants who are working toward their goals, showing their commitment to their careers.
The $500 scholarship is awarded in early spring to women ages 25 years and older. Applicants must submit a one-page letter explaining how the scholarship will be used to further enhance her personal or professional objectives. Application announcements take place in February and March of each year. Look for announcements printed in the local newspapers, on Facebook, and on our website.
We believe that education is a powerful tool for empowerment, and through the Audrey Malling Adult Scholarship, WAN aims to support and uplift women striving for personal and professional growth. Scholarship funds can be used for continuing education courses, paying college expenses, building professional development, or other activities related to personal career growth, including conferences and online classes.
