The Athena ACE scholarship was founded in 2009 by a small group of women who wanted the local ATHENA Award program to have a more permanent, long-term impact for our community. The idea was that a scholarship would be a great way to help one or more women as they attempted to improve their lives through education.
Our program is based upon the core values promoted by the ATHENA International program:
- Excellence, creativity and initiative in her profession,
- Valuable service by contributing time and energy to her community, and
- Assistance to other women of all ages in reaching their full potential.
