In other Chamber women’s networking news, the committee is currently seeking applications for their ninth annual Women’s Empowerment Grant. Applications and cover letters are due no later than July 29th. This grant was established to encourage women to pursue training or education that will help them start or advance their career. The target of the grant is women who are: currently working and want to advance in their career through education or training; returning to the workforce; and/or seeking to change their current career path and pursue something more in line with their
interests or passions. The grant is also intended to be available to those who would not necessarily have access to scholarships or grants. For this reason, graduating high school students will not be eligible to apply for the grant. Candidates must reside within the service area of the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce, which includes anyone who resides within the Hazleton Area School District. Applications may be downloaded from the chamber website at www.hazletonchamber.org.
