Women Who Create Scholarship

About the Women Who Create Scholarship

The Women Who Create Scholarship Award was established in fall 2020 as part of the Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship’s effort to continue to support, help, and celebrate women entrepreneurs through the Women Who Create programming.  Special thanks to the Ivy College of Business and Tom Swartwood & Terri Combs for the gifts to establish the awards.
