The Tangipahoa Professional Women’s Organization (TPW) is now accepting applications for 2018 scholarship recipients. The annual Women Mean Business Conference funds the scholarships.

This will be the sixth year the organization will award scholarships. Any female resident of the parish entering higher education or currently enrolled at a university, college, vocational school or technical college is welcome to apply.

TPW is proud of fostering connections between professionals and students who have been inspired to pursue their professional and academic goals.

April 17 is the deadline to submit completed applications for the 2018 scholarship. For details concerning the TPW scholarship and to download the application, visit and click on 2018 TPW Scholarship.

“Last year, $17,000 was awarded to seventeen local students,” said Dawn Forshag Cazedessus, TPW president-elect and current scholarship chair. "March 22nd is the date of our conference, Women Mean Business, and all sponsorships collected will go towards the scholarship fund.”

TPW was developed in 2007 to foster communication with and support in business. It later established the scholarship fund, which has contributed more than $50,000 to the educational and professional pursuits of Tangipahoa Parish women.
