Are you a female or woman identified student in your sophomore year? Consider applying to be a part of the BOLD Women's Leadership Network at IC!

I am pleased to announce that Ithaca College has received an additional grant from the Pussycat Foundation that will allow us to select TWO additional cohorts of BOLD Scholars! The BOLD Program is an innovative women’s leadership initiative with the theme of: Intergenerational Mentoring, Identity, and Social Change.  BOLD scholars are awarded a two-year scholarship of up to $27,500 per year and those selected will become part of a cohort of about 7-9 students.  I invite you to review the details on the IC BOLD website at carefully and read the information below. If interested in applying to become a BOLD Scholar please complete the information as outlined.  We are very excited to offer this amazing leadership and career networking opportunity to our current sophomore women that will be juniors in the fall.


If you have questions I look forward to speaking with you at one of the information sessions (not required, but encouraged): Tuesday, February 11th, or Thursday, February 20th, both from 12:10pm-12:50pm in Friends 210.
