As in past years the Women Making History will continue to help young women in the community who are deserving of a scholarship.  They must be enrolled at Mohave Community College or the MCC/NAU program.  Scholarship funds are raised in various ways including donations from the public and donations during the event.  This is the only way the group can sustain support.  This is the most important aspect of our organization as we strive to reward outstanding women who are studying to be the future leaders of our community.  All donations go directly to the recipient. 

The public is encouraged to send in a donation for scholarships to the following address: Women Making History, P.O. Box 4179, Kingman, AZ 86402. Anyone is welcome to make a donation and a nomination.  Contact the college for scholarship information.
