Education Partnership Opportunity


Become an Education Partner

We invite individuals and local businesses to partner with New-Roc ABWA to support the Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Fund (SBMEF).

SBMEF has been supporting businesswomen for more than 50 years and has awarded over $16 million in grants and scholarships with the support of individuals and businesses like you.

New-Roc ABWA sponsors several education grant and scholarship opportunities through SBMEF for women in our community.

  1. The Outright Grant Program awards a $2,000 scholarship to a junior level and above female student.
  2. The SBMEF Business Skills Tuition Reimbursement Program (BSTR) provides working women tuition reimbursement of up to one half of the tuition and/or up to a maximum amount of $500 each award year.

How can I Partner?

You can partner at one of 3 levels:

  1. Vocational Level – $100
  2. Undergraduate Level – $200
  3. Graduate Level – $300

All funds go toward grants and scholarships for the programs listed above providing women with financial assistance to attend college, trade school and professional development.
