Draper Contest Nurtures Women Entrepreneurs Financial Aid Opens Doors to Women of Promise The Jandon Center Connects Students with the Community
The fifth annual Draper Competition for Collegiate Women Entrepreneurs will be held on campus later this week. Aimee Rong ’19 (left) and Tasbiha Chowdhury ’19 won third place in the 2016 competition with their idea for Tutor Town, a service that offers tutoring by college students. The students’ words varied slightly, but the sentiments they expressed at a recent event were unwavering: "Without financial aid I wouldn’t be here." Securing funds for aid was the highest priority of the Women for the World campaign, which raised close to $130 million for financial aid. The Jandon Center for Community Engagement is Smith’s hub for community-driven projects and social-change research. The center has partnered with organizations in western Massachusetts—and as far away as India—to address the complex issues facing communities and society.
