Scholarship winners
Executive Women International (EWI) of Chattanooga recently continued a tradition started in 1996 by donating $12,000 to the Jean Bradford Memorial Endowment Fund at UTC, $6,000 to Chattanooga State and $3,000 to Southern Adventist University. All three institutions are member of EWI.

One of the nine scholarship winners stated, "When I started school, I had a lot of fear and a lot of negative voices telling me how I wasn't good enough. The EWI scholarship has been a real blessing to me. I don't feel alone anymore."

Another comments included, "Thank you for teaching me that with hard work and a little help, dreams are possible." "Thank you for helping me out when I needed it most." "Your words of encouragement meant so much to me." "EWI's support will help me towards my goal of a new life for my kids and me."

Since chartering in 1987, EWI of Chattanooga has contributed more than $170,000 to scholarship donations at area schools. The scholarships are specifically designated for single mothers.
