OUR SCHOLARSHIP PARTNERSHIP

Each year, WBON of the Triangle has partnered as a non-profit and has given an annual scholarship to a woman to continue her education with Wake Technical Community College as part of our scholarship program. In the past, the recipient was chosen through a essay submitted by the student. This year, WBON of the Triangle is joining Wake Tech in Love Your Career Day and is participating in a pitch contest to issue our scholarship.

Please join us this year for the first inaugural WBON Women’s in Business Pitch Contest at the Wake Tech Community College Love Your Career Fair!
