Trenton, NJ (PRWEB) November 9, 2010
The Institute of Wonderful Women Working for Empowerment (IWWWE) today announced that November 1 through November 22, it will receive applications for the fall, 2010, Just in Time Grants. The grants are provided to minority women in health care training in the Trenton and Mercer County community who are experiencing challenges to completing training. The grants are designed to encourage trainees to remain in school, complete their training and obtain employment in the health care field.
Just in Time grants are awarded based on the need as described in the application and in consultation with their school administration. Recipients are those women who have demonstrated a commitment to improving themselves and the lives of their families. They have applyed and entering an accredited program for health care training. Past awards have supported tuition assistance, books and audio books, baby clothing car repairs and more. Former recipients such as Jacqueline say, “thank you so much for considering and awarding me with the Just in Time Scholarship. It is really a great feeling to know that there are other sisters in the community who are praying for my success and supporting my endeavors.”
The Just in Time Grant Program works together with the eMentoring program to provide continued support and encouragement through the Protégé Network. EMentors are professionals in the health care field who share their expertise and guidance to students and new health care professionals. Both programs provide linkages to additional information about the health care field, allow participants to take advantage of lessons learned by professionals and the guidance they can share. The online mentors for the program are very credentialed. Most are nurses, either Licensed Practical Nurse or Registered Nurse. Mentors include teachers, attorneys with RN degrees, heads of departments mentor, to mention just a few. All have many years experience.
Funding for Just in Time grants, made possible by funders who are committed to improving the quality of life in local communities, include the Princeton Area Community Foundation, Sun National Bank, Women Helping Women Co-Actively of Bucks County, Be Loved Community, Family Guidance and Family and Children’s Services, Inc., Mercer County Vocational School, Health Care Career Center and many local donors and supporters. Their support makes it possible to award grants, to enable recipients to realize dreams and reach goals.
