To encourage the women in the field of business, the Sacramento Region Community Foundation is now sponsoring a wonderful Carroylin and Robert Threlkel Scholarship. This scheme will provide financial support to female students toward their education. For this program, the foundation will recruit female students pursuing a business-related undergraduate degree at an accredited college university or community college.
The business is considered a male-dominated field, and somewhere women have been unrepresented in this area. But these days, an increasing number of women are taking an interest in becoming entrepreneurs and business leaders. The foundation has initiated this wonderful scheme to support such aspiring women who hold the potential to be a successful business leader. With the help of this funding program, the foundation wants to increase the number of female business leaders and give them the chance to reach their fullest potential.
Sacramento Region Community Foundation has been connecting people who care with causes that matter. This foundation is the only foundation of its kind in the Sacramento region. It has been providing philanthropic services and helping people who help society to grow and work for human welfare. The foundation helps people in El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo counties achieve their philanthropic goals.
