PEO chapter awards scholarship

The PEO Chapter W in Wilton recently awarded an International Peace Scholarship to a young woman from Mexico, Ana Diaz Benitez, with whom the chapter is a partner in peace, to help with her expenses at Yale University, where she is working on her master’s degree in business administration.

In 2017-18, 180 students from 68 countries received a portion of more than $2 million in scholarships distributed under the IPS program.

Wilton’s PEO chapter supports the program and other PEO projects that support women’s education by raising funds along with nearly 6,000 PEO chapters across the United States and Canada.
