Scholarship Programs 2014-2015

Since its inception, Executive Women of the Palm Beaches, Inc. Foundation (the Foundation) has awarded more than $408,000 for scholarships and community projects. College scholarships are awarded annually to outstanding women pursuing their advanced education.

The Foundation has provided financial support to the Palm Beach Community College Early Learning Center, the Domestic Abuse program, the Girls State program of the American Legion Auxiliary and the Girls II Women mentoring program.
