Through the HORIZONS Scholarship program, Women In Defense National has invested over $310,000 in more than 130 females to support their advancement in diplomacy, national security, and national defense related careers.
In the 28 years that Women In Defense has offered these scholarships, members have witnessed the tremendous impact this support has had in the lives of young women. HORIZONS scholarship winners have been able to launch their careers in government agencies such as the State Department and Department of Defense as well as organizations like BAE Systems, Booz Allen Hamilton, Goldman Sachs, RAND Corporation, and SAIC. These women are actively engaged in finding solutions to our nation’s most complex national security challenges.
More than 100 friends of Women In Defense and scholarship awardees will attend this celebration. They share a demonstrated commitment to a diverse and dynamic workforce.
