EWNJ Graduate Scholarship for Grace Springer ’19

Social work graduate student Grace Springer ’19 recently received the Graduate Merit Award Program 2023 Scholarship from the Executive Women of New Jersey (EWNJ). The scholarship is awarded to non-traditional students attending New Jersey colleges and universities.

The EWNJ defines a non-traditional student as someone who is returning to their studies several years after an undergraduate degree; completing their undergraduate degree at a later date; changing their career and returning to school; or coming from a non-traditional educational or socioeconomic background.

Springer returned to Monmouth University to pursue her master’s degree in social work, after graduating from the University in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. She attributes her career shift to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and her value for human connection.

Currently, Springer is a clinical intern with Monmouth’s Counseling and Prevention Services, working with undergraduate students through individual therapy, and has aspirations of opening a private practice.

The EWNJ Graduate Merit Award Program seeks to establish a pipeline for future women leaders to excel and flourish in corporate spaces.
