BWU YOUNG QUEEN (Y.Q.) Scholarship Foundation (for girls 10 -18) is a fund used to help young ladies across the country pursue their dreams. BWU Media & Entertainment Group is a platform for exposure and success. We focus on making dreams come true and leading by example through our diligence and consistent drive to help our community and keep them informed.
Mission: To provide Young Queens with the opportunity to obtain the education, supplies, or resources needed to pursue their educational or entrepreneurial dream or venture.
What is a YQ?
A YQ (Young Queen) is a young lady between the ages of 10-18 who already has a goal in mind for her future. She is serious about this goal and is prepared to share it with the world. She is talented, smart, and driven for academic success. She wants to help others and is an example to her peers. A YQ is open to learning more about her desired field from a professional in her field and has a strong desire to succeed in all she does.
What are the benefits of being a YQ?
Being a YQ benefits your young lady by allowing her to be a part of a national organization. This organization is backed by a group of talented and professional women who host national events that give your YQ a platform to display her talent, be rewarded for her success and educational accomplishments.
Your YQ will receive support to pursue her dream from the BWU Community.
Your YQ will receive her own personal membership letter, a special gift, and access to the scholarship fund for project grants and travel allowances to attend YQ events that are held all over the country.
Your YQ receives her own personal printed article about what she is doing and her plans for the future.
Your YQ is also entered into the contest to be one of the 5 nationally recognized Young Queens at BWU Fashion Weekend.
All young ladies are considered Young Queens to BWU. However, we have a mission motivate and give the YQ's who apply for a membership the opportunity to be heard. Rather the young lady in your life has a goal to be a teacher, designer, famous artist or even a lawyer, BWU wants to aid her on her pathway to success.
How can the young lady in my life get involved?
So, you want your leading lady to be a member of the YQ Program? Here is what you need to do..
- Complete the YQ application and upload her photo. (please follow specific photo guidelines in order for your application to be accepted)
- Send in 30 - 60 second video of your YQ talking about her dream/current venture. (The YQ should be the only one in the video, must be a white background, and clear to see and understand.)
Please note that any pictures, videos sent in will be used for promotional purposes for the YQ Program and the YQ will be listed on the YQ Acknowledgement Page along with a bio. She will also be highlighted whenever she is granted a scholarship. YQ's with exceptional accomplishments, i.e., honor roll, job promotions, community service, etc. will be highlighted on the YQ page as well. It is your responsibility to notify BWU when your YQ requests to be acknowledged on the BWU Website. All YQ's who are accepted will receive a personal acceptance letter, certificate of membership, and personal signed letter from the members of the BWU Team.
There is only a limited amount of YQ's being accepted right now, this is because we want to be able to personally accommodate each YQ. In order to do that, we need a constant flow of sponsors and donors. If you think this is an awesome venture, we ask that you share this and get involved in some way. If all slots fill up, we ask that you still send in an application to be placed on the waiting list.
