ULTA Awards $80,000 in Scholarships: Committed to positively impacting the future of women, ULTA launched in 2008 the ULTA Enrich, Empower & Enlighten Scholarship Fund to benefit outstanding high school senior girls in select communities across the country.
Sixteen deserving young women were selected based on their academic achievements, community involvement, leadership qualities and commitment to continuing their education; each girl received a scholarship to the educational institution of her choice.
The young women also were offered the opportunity to take advantage of a special trip to Chicago for an awards luncheon and shopping spree at ULTA on State Street with Lyn Kirby, President and CEO of ULTA.
“These young women have demonstrated exceptional commitment to giving back to their communities, and they show great promise for becoming future leaders in their chosen fields,” said Lyn Kirby, President and CEO. “With the ULTA Enrich, Empower & Enlighten Scholarships, we hope to bring them one step closer to reaching their dreams.”
In 2009-2010, ULTA will expand the program to award Enrich, Empower & Enlighten Scholarships to high school senior girls in additional communities nationwide.
