From Our Founder’s desk: Meet our 2017 Fall Scholarship Recipients!

As founder of the 1,000 Dreams Fund, I’m thrilled to announce our fall “Class of 2017” scholarship recipients! These young women are doing some astounding things in their communities, and you’ll be meeting them in the weeks to come.

We want to thank everyone who applied. You made our decision difficult! I also want to especially thank the student committee who helped us review the 400+ applications that we received on this most recent round.

Congrats again to these 10 inspiring women! We can wait to see where you go!
