Comments from Past Winners:
“Attending the GWIN meeting was a spectacular experience. It was really powerful to see how building a community and creating connections can help individuals grow. Receiving this scholarship and becoming a part of that network has encouraged me to continue my journey of self-improvement by also helping others.”
– Morla Phan, 2018 Scholarship Recipient
“I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for inviting me to Tuesday night’s meeting and for selecting me as the winner of the GWIN scholarship this year. It was great to meet everyone and see how beneficial it is to have a network of women in Guelph. Talking to everyone and hearing about everyone’s business ventures made me feel quite honored and proud to be receiving an award from you. Receiving your scholarship allows me to continue to be heavily involved in many volunteer activities at the university and in the community. As a matter of fact, I just got invited to attend a National Slow Food Conference in Montreal. The cost to travel and stay in Montreal is quite high so I’ll be using part of the money you gave to me to go towards being able to travel to the conference. GWIN’s scholarship has already really helped me out!”
