Event Details

Each year, The Undergraduate Women in Business (UWiB) Association follows our mission to enable the next generation of future female business leaders. The most empowering way we do this is through our scholarship fund. Our total proceeds from this fundraiser in the past five years are above $30,000, and last year we reached our goal of endowment status. This is an amazing accomplishment for our student-run organization as it now allows our fund to grow in perpetuity and ensures that future generation’s education endeavors are supported. We are excited to build on our successes this year, and we hope that you can join us.
