    March 5, 2020

    On Thursday, March 5, 2020 at the Albany Marriott, the Women’s Fund of the Capital Region celebrated and recognizd our 2020 Trailblazers and introduce a new award: WERC’s Community Leading Star.

    We are excited to announce that The Women’s Fund of the Capital Region is merging with the Capital District Women’s Employment & Resource Center (WERC), effective January 1, 2020.

    I am writing to express my gratitude for your generous $5000.00 Women's Fund of the Capital Region Scholarship. I was thrilled and appreciative to learn that I was selected as the recipient of your scholarship.

    I am double majoring in Nanoscale Science and Engineering and Computer Science at SCCC.
