Carolyn M. O’Connor Scholarship
This scholarship was established by the Chamber’s Businesswomen’s Committee, to help Cape Ann area women achieve their continuing education and career goals.
The deadline for applications is September.
Carolyn O’Connor was the first Chairperson of the Businesswomen’s Committee. This scholarship honors her dedication to and involvement with the Businesswomen and the Chamber over the years. Organized in 1986, the Businesswomen’s group is committed to the growth of Cape Ann businesses and the professional development of the Chamber’s women members.
In 2005 the group established the scholarship fund to give back to the local community. Scholarships are awarded annually. We welcome applications from women who are returning to the work force after an absence or are considering a career change, in an effort to better their life situation. Women who, for whatever reason, were not able to complete their education/training.
