Invest in Your Future
Texas Business Women can help provide financial aid to help you fund your education. As part of a partnership with the Texas Business and Professional Women’s Foundation, TBW offers three scholarships for women looking to advance their careers.
Whether you’re applying to college for the first time, or just need some extra training to get that promotion, we want to help you get the education you deserve.
The Hermine Tobolowsky Scholarship
is awarded to a woman of academic achievement who wishes to enter the professions of law, public service, government, political science, or women’s history. Ms. Tobolowsky devoted 26 years to lobbying and testifying before legislative committees for equal legal rights. The people of Texas voted for the passage of Amendment 7, the Equal Legal Rights Amendment, on November 7, 1972. On that day BPW members chanted “Oh, Thank Heaven for Amendment Seven.” In memory of Ms. Tobolowsky, BPW Dallas Inc. provided the initial funding to create a scholarship to support women pursuing public policy education.
