GenHERation and Women in Toys, Licensing, and Entertainment (WIT) have partnered together to award a talented young woman a $2,500 scholarship in 2017.

The WIT Scholarship is intended to honor the achievements of women who are studying in the fields of toy design, engineering, entrepreneurship, and business. The scholarships are designed to promote academic excellence and increased visibility of talented students across WIT industries. Candidates have the opportunity to apply for the annual scholarship on the basis of merit, innovation, and leadership. The scholarship is available to be used by the recipients to further enhance their academic goals. Recipients are announced in February at the WIT Wonder Women Awards Gala.

The WIT Scholarship is funded the WIT Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) corporation that proudly supports its commitment to education by granting scholarships to outstanding women currently pursuing degrees in preparation for careers in a wide array of industry-related fields.

Every student who submits an application will also be entered into our lottery and eligible to win one of ten mentoring sessions with a female executive in the toy industry. Please submit your application here by Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at 11:59 PM EST and email with any questions.
