As a new organization, we are looking for support to complete the Colorado Grant Application as our first project. We are also looking for someone who can support in creating a grant template that we can use for grants outside of Colorado to pull from. We are looking for a person who can take the materials provided and generate a compelling grant application that we can use to submit to various grants as they become available. This is a one time project but may take over 40 hours.
Yaa's Beautifully Equipped Scholarship is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to equity in learning and persistence to graduation. Our organization was created to address the chasm that exists for women of color to access resources for self care and overall wellness.
In 2016, a few women came together with what started with a monthly happy hour made exclusively for us (by us). From the conversations, that same group of women formed this scholarship fund.
Many members realized that they shared similar college experience and wanted to create a community facing fund to help break the cycle that left many feeling excluded and alone. Like the magic we are, we have created something awe-inspiring. Without the sense of community we have felt since starting our group, this beautiful idea would not have come to fruition.
With that, we created Yaa’s Beautifully Equipped Scholarship (#YAASBE). Our mission is to address the chasm that exists for women of color to access resources for self care and overall wellness. We plan on doing that by equipping scholarship recipients with tools for holistic success utilizing resources of other professional women of color in the community.
