NETWORK is a not-for-profit organization that fosters the development, leadership and mentoring of women within the United States Postal Service.

Scholarship Selection and Award Process:
The NETWORK Each One Reach One Scholarship Committee reviews all applications.
Scholarships are awarded in the form of an “Award Certificate” issued by the NETWORK National Organization, conditional upon the applicant’s enrollment in an accredited American college or university.
The scholarship recipient is required to submit an official transcript upon satisfactory completion of course(s), during the scholarship period, November 1st - October 31st. Each applicant must be a member in good standing. After verification and approval, a check for the amount of the scholarship will be forwarded to the recipient.
Scholarship recipients are selected and awarded based on the following criteria:
- Written communication and leadership skills

• One letter must be from a NETWORK member
• One letter must be from a Postal supervisor or manager.
All applications must be postmarked by September 30th and received by October 14th prior to the scholarship period to be considered for tuition assistance. Failure to follow instructions will result in the applicant’s disqualification.
