WIN Cleveland Business Major Scholarship Fund

Our mission to enable continuous professional growth through sharing ideas, resources and providing business support as well as opportunities for women to learn and thrive, personally and professionally prompted establishing the WIN Cleveland Business Major Scholarship.

This annual need based scholarship awards a Junior, Senior or graduate female student demonstrating financial need attending Ursuline College pursuing a Business focused degree.

Proceeds from our Annual Event fund the WIN Cleveland Business Major Scholarship.

We are proud to partner with Ursuline College, the only college in Ohio that focuses on the education of women. 90% of their undergraduate students are strong, empowered women who are interested in changing the world – some locally and others globally.

Ursuline students are artists, activists, mentors, difference-makers, athletes and scientists. Students are encouraged to participate in service, promote social justice, contemplate their individual spirituality and pursue lifelong learning. 

Ursuline has been providing a holistic education which transform students for service, leadership and professional excellence for over 146 years. Approximately 30% of Ursuline undergraduates are students of color, another 10% come from other states and countries, and all major world religions are represented.
