For over seventeen years, the Chamber has championed professional women through its Paradigm Scholarship for Working Women.

The Paradigm Scholarship for Working Women, presented in conjunction with the Paradigm Award, is a merit-based scholarship that is awarded annually to women who are working toward an undergraduate degree. Over $402,000 has been awarded to working women since the scholarship’s inception in 2000.


“The Paradigm Scholarship has provided me with the keys to turn my dreams of earning a college degree into success.” — Jowanna Williams-Parks, AmeriHealth Caritas, 2017 Paradigm Scholarship Recipient

The Paradigm Scholarship and Award are one of the many initiatives the Chamber is pioneering to drive an inclusive environment in the professional world.
