Today Blindsgalore (blindsgalore.com) introduces a new scholarship opportunity for female students enrolled in post-secondary education. Partnering with the American Business Women’s Association (ABWA), The Blindsgalore National Scholarship has created an essay contest open to women currently enrolled in a college or university.

Blindsgalore is proud to be a contributing member of the ABWA and looks forward to assisting a deserving female student with her educational and professional posture.

“We’re excited to offer this scholarship to a great candidate out there,” said Chelle Walters, CEO of Blindsgalore. “As a woman who owns her own business, I’m honored to be able to create an opportunity for female students looking to advance their degrees and careers.
