Established in 2002, the program is a group of more than 50 women from the community and the university whose gifts promote higher education and leadership. Each year, the organization awards annual scholarships to deserving Coastal Carolina University students.

Since the group began offering scholarships, more than $45,000 has been awarded to 52 students. The 16 awards for 2010-2011 represent the most recipients and the highest total value of scholarships awarded by the organization in a single year.

This year, 10 scholarships have been funded through the Life and Legacy Scholarship initiative, which provides an opportunity for donors to establish an annual scholarship in honor, memory or celebration of a life or legacy.

To be eligible for the 2010-2011 scholarship, continuing and transfer students must have met the following criteria: completion a minimum of 15 credit hours with a cumulative collegiate grade point average of at least 3.2; be enrolled at least part-time; and demonstrate financial need. Preference is given to students from Horry, Georgetown, Dillon, Marion or Williamsburg counties.

Candidates also submit a written statement explaining how the scholarship will assist their academic preparation for attaining their career goals. Upon recommendation from a scholarship committee of WPL, all awards are coordinated through the university's Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
