Space Coast Federally Employed Women Donate To WENDI Program
 
 
The Federally Employed Women (FEW) Space Coast Chapter at NASA's Kennedy Space Center recently voted to contribute $6,000 in educational scholarship funds for 2006 to the Brevard Community College WENDI program, which helps people prepare to reenter the work field after a significant change in their lives.

FEW organizes and sponsors conferences and seminars on issues pertinent to women that have benefited not only their members and women at KSC, but throughout Brevard.

The scholarship program was inaugurated in 1976 in cooperation with Brevard Community College. In 1989, the chapter extended the program to include the University of Central Florida, and in recent years has opened the scholarships to graduating high school seniors and students in college. Since 1995, the FEW Space Coast Chapter has awarded more than $63,000 in educational scholarships to local students.
