Review for Broward International Women's Club, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been with BIWC for 6 years and on the board for 3 years. Our mission is to provide scholarships to women from foreign countries attending NOVA University hoping to achieve their academic goals and helping the people of their homeland. I have had the honor of meeting several recipients of our scholarships and I am deeply moved by how much these funds mean to them and how appreciative they are of our work on their behalf.

While we work hard to raise as much money as possible for these scholarships, we really need donors and sponsors to help us achieve our mission.

Review for Broward International Women's Club, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a social and fundraising organization that awards scholarships yearly to women from different countries attending Nova S.U. I've been with Broward International Women's Club for 4 years, on the board for 2. Have met so many interesting, dynamic women from different countries and cultures and have learned so much. Also, had the privilege of being on the scholarship selection committee and reading about and meeting such amazing, intelligent, committed young women from different parts of the world who are taking advanced studies here with the hope of improving conditions in their own countries. Their dedication has been inspiring. I'm proud to be part of an organization that helps these incredible women achieve their goals.

Review for Broward International Women's Club, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am proud to be a member and board member for the past two years. I had the opportunity to sit on the selection committee to award scholarships to deserving women from foreign lands who have overcome incredible odds to achieve their educational dreams in our country with the hope of improving conditions in their homelands. I have had the privilege to meet several of these remarkable women. Also, I have been able to meet many delightful women from around the world and learn of their cultures.
As a business consultant to nonprofits in Broward for the past 8 years, I am not aware of any other agency who offers these unique opportunities.

Role:  Board Member & I sat on the selection committee to pick deserving women to receive educational scholarships.
