The Anchorage ATHENA Society, a program of the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce, offers a camp scholarship to local young women, who have finished their freshman year of high school through 18 years of age, for an opportunity to learn leadership skills, to learn about innovation, start-ups, entrepreneurship and gain business expertise.
And the best news is that the Anchorage ATHENA Society will award camp scholarships for two business camps: Alaska Business Week at Alaska Pacific University in Anchorage, July 15-22 and Young Entrepreneurs Business Week (YEBW) at the University of Portland in Portland, Oregon, July 9-15.
The scholarship recipients will also be provided with a cash stipend from the Soroptimist International of Anchorage on Cook Inlet.
Eligible applicants are high school girls who have finished their freshman year of high school through 18 years of age with an interest in business and entrepreneurship who live in the Anchorage area (Anchorage, Eagle River/Chugiak and Girdwood).
