The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) would like to extend a Big Thank You to the Utah Women’s Forum for their recent donation. The Utah Women's Forum is a nonpartisan, nonprofit network organization for women of outstanding accomplishment in diverse fields. The purpose of the Utah Women's Forum is to identify and bring together women who are business, professional, and civic leaders, in order to build and foster a network of communication, enhance the status of women, and undertake selected community service.
The donation the Utah Women’s Forum made to the WRC is for continuation grants for female scholars who are in danger of discontinuing their education based on a small financial shortfall is greatly appreciated. Increasingly the WRC is being identified on campus and in the community as an office that supports and retains students, specifically female to students, and assists them in their desire to graduate from The University of Utah. Our latest 10 year assessment for retention and graduation rates indicated an 88% success for our scholarship recipients and a 83% success for Emergency Fund recipients.
We greatly appreciate the trust and support the Utah Women’s Forum has shown to us!
