The Fresh Start Scholarship Foundation, Inc. is the charitable arm of Wilmington Women in Business, Inc. (WWB). We award annual scholarships to adult women based on need, academic record and potential for success. We provide mentoring support to our scholars through professional women in the community. Our goal is to support these women through commencement so that they emerge with a renewed sense of self-esteem and financial independence and assist them in networking when they graduate. At the same time, our scholars serve as role models to their children and others who might be considering educational pathways to a better future.


Our vision is to create an all-volunteer, sustainable foundation to continually grow the number and size of scholarships and strengthen mentoring services for women in need.


Our mission is to provide incentive to adult women who have faced personal and economic challenges and are seeking to improve opportunities for themselves and their families through education.
