Women of Midland

3rd Annual Women of Midland Campaign

About the Campaign

The Women of Midland campaign is a fundraising and storytelling initiative held during Women's History Month that aims to recognize past and present women of Midland and raise scholarship support to impact future generations of women students at Midland University. The campaign aims to raise funds for the Women of Midland Scholarship Fund in honor of bold women who forged paths to become the first in their fields to achieve a goal, to encourage future women to be bold, courageous, and be inspired to become a "first."

Women of Midland Scholarship Fund

The Women of Midland Scholarship Fund was created to celebrate 140 years of women at Midland University. Through this scholarship fund, we hope to inspire and support the next generation of women at Midland by supporting traditional or non-traditional female students of Midland University's undergraduate programs.

Women of Midland Spotlights

In 2024, we celebrate the women who forged paths, displayed courage, pressed on, and blazed trails for future generations. Many of these women were the first in their fields to succeed. Who do you know was the first woman in their field to achieve a goal no one thought they would?

Read inspirational stories about women, and stories shared by alumni and friends. Who do you know was the first woman in their field to achieve a goal? Who do you know was the first woman in your family to get a college degree? Who do you know was a bold and courageous woman who paved the way and inspired you?
