BIWC is an organization of dedicated and supportive women, who take the time to consider assisting with the financial needs of international students at Nova Southeastern University.

As a proud recipient of BIWC’s scholarships, I am grateful for their funding in assisting with my educational path. My dreams were to touch the lives of people through training, therapy, and community development. BIWC made an indelible mark in making such dreams realities. As a PhD candidate in Marriage and Family Therapy, I reflect on the ripple effect of this organization, because with each student that I will train, or each family that achieve their goals, or each community touched, BIWC will always be among the many individuals who made my goals possible. Thank you!

BIWC is a gift to international students (women) at the Nova Southeastern University. I am a proud recipient of the BIWC scholarship. It has helped me tremendously with my school finances and has given me an open door to meet and interact with wonderful people from different cultures around the world.

To Whom It May Concern:

I have had the pleasure of working with the Broward International Women’s Club (BIWC). This is a group of dedicated volunteers that work with the community to raise funds for deserving students at Nova Southeastern University. I have had an opportunity to speak with their award recipients and hear success stories all because of the generosity of the BIWC. Their ideas are innovative and they are making their mark in the community.

Respectfully,
Rochelle

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives they are touching by creating an international scholarship for students that otherwise would not afford to continue their studies.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the membership and develop a membership campaign.

The first board meeting I attended happened to be followed by a yearly event were the scholarship grant check is handed to Nova Southeastern University, attended by University representatives, grant recipient students and some of our Club members. It was such a treat to meet these young women who were so determined to become professionals that they didn't stop at the fact that these careers were simply not available in their countries. It was very inspiring to listen to them talk about their plans once they finished and went back home. Education doesn't only changes the life of the person who receives it but also those around them, education it's the only hope for many countries that live in poverty, to raise their quality of life.

The Broward International Women's Club actively makes the selection of the girls who will receive the scholarships, through a process established by the organization, which includes evaluation of the grades and inclination to give back. I'm very proud to belong to this organization.

This year one of the scholarship recipients, once she graduates, will be the first audiologist in her country. That is huge!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find sponsors that would be willing to support our organization on an ongoing basis.
