The Adult Students in Scholastic Transition (ASIST) scholarship program provides financial support to adult students at transitional points in their lives. The scholarship is a non-discriminatory, educational scholarship for the benefit of non-traditional students. These include persons who are past high school age and who are entering a college, university or trade school and/or workforce for the first time; non-traditional students already enrolled in a college/university or trade program, are re-training due to changes in the workplace, or who otherwise are not the traditional college or trade school student, recently finished with high school.

At the May 3, 2016 membership meeting we celebrated the ASIST Scholarship program.

ASIST Judges: Candy Walton, Sr. Director of Development & Campaign, Zoological Society of Milwaukee; Atty. Brenda Lewis, Arthur Heitzer Law Offices; and Annmarie Scobey-Polachek, Director Corporate Programs Public Affairs, Diversity & Inclusion at Johnson Controls, Inc. choose 3 students who they felt followed the application guidelines set forth by the Executive Women International Organization.

The ASIST recipients are:

  • 1st Place $3000 scholarship – Celestina Passo, student at Gateway Technical College
  • 2nd Place $2000 scholarship – Sarah Dill, student at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee
  • 3rd Place $1000 scholarship – Veronica Peoples, student at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee

Applications now closed. The ASIST Scholarship will be offered again in early 2018.
