Mothers, Mentors and Muses Fifth Annual Scholarship Fundraiser ReceptionPosted Feb. 17, 2014
On Tuesday, March 11, the Women’s Center at Kent State University will host the fifth annual Mothers, Mentors and Muses Scholarship Fundraiser reception. The event will take place at the Kent Student Center Ballroom from 5-7:30 p.m.
The event honors women as a mother – someone who has helped “birth” new ideas and thoughts in others and also has served as an overall nurturing individual; a mentor – an individual who has been both a role model and a trusted counselor to others; or a muse – an individual who has inspired both creativity and academic enthusiasm in others.

The Women’s Center, which was established in 1996, has been focused on advancing women in their academic careers. Money raised at the event will fund $500 scholarship awards for two Kent State female students. This scholarship has benefitted 18 students since its introduction in 2003.
