Goddess Rising Scholarship for Young Women

The Goddess Rising Scholarship for Young Women is an $1000.00 scholarship generated from the donations of the 5th Annual International Women’s Day Event Goddess Rising. Held on March 11th 2017 at the Fernie Community Centre, the event profits will be used to award one young woman from the Elk Valley with the scholarship money. (Additional scholarships may be awarded if the event generates additional prize money) In the past Goddess Rising Organizers Rachel Cline & Tanya Malcolm have donated the event profits to various local organizations & international organizations that support women. In 2015 they decided to create a scholarship to support a young woman in pursuit of higher education.
