Congratulations to the C200 Scholarship Winners!

The Office of Internship and Career Development is pleased to announce the scholarship winners for The Committee of 200, an organization dedicated to fostering, celebrating and advancing women's leadership in business.  C200 is a pioneering organization of the most senior women executives in successful private and public companies, including ASC Board of Trustees member Sally Guthrie ’69, who facilitated a C200 professional development event for all interested Agnes Scott students in fall 2015.

C200 Scholarships were then provided to students who exemplify extraordinary leadership potential, entrepreneurial spirit and a commitment to supporting other women. Winners were selected through competitive application and interview. They each received up to $4,000 toward costs associated with career or educational pursuits such as: graduate school test prep or fees, travel/living expenses for an internship or fellowship, and supplemental education courses including Bridge to Business.
