Each year, in addition to presenting the Paradigm Award to a singular woman in business whose outstanding professional and personal achievements serve as a model for success, the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia awards several women the Paradigm Scholarship for Working Women, provided with generous support from Stradley Ronon.

Through the generosity and determination of many individuals and corporations, the Paradigm Award has grown to include this scholarship to enhance and benefit the career aspirations of working women in the Greater Philadelphia area. Since its introduction in 2000, the Paradigm Scholarship for Working Women has awarded $437,000 to 139 women to help continue their education.

This merit scholarship is presented annually to women who wish to complete their undergraduate degree while working full-time for Chamber member companies. Recipients receive up to $5,000 to be used toward tuition and/or books.

To continue supporting the career aspirations of female professionals in our region and to increase the contribution made to the Paradigm Scholarship Fund, a raffle will be held at an award celebration luncheon on March 21, 2019.
