Annual Barbara Devetski Scholarship

Annual Scholarship Essay Contest

The Women’s Fund for Health Education and Resiliency invites all graduating, college-bound high school senior girls to participate in its annual scholarship essay contest. Barbara Devetski, a valued leader and gatherer of people, served as The Women’s Fund’s Executive for more than two decades.  In 2015, Barbara succumbed to cancer.  Until the end she was a fighter, the very essence of what we teach – resiliency. This scholarship endowment was generously established by the Hoglund Foundation.
