Women's Mentoring Network Book Award
In the past, the Women's Mentoring Network has awarded several WMN Book Award Winners to help support non-traditional student women's educational textbook costs. Students would apply in early Spring and enclose copies of their textbook receipts. The awards were announced at the Non-Traditional Student Social and Awards Ceremony held in April each year.
