Hermine Tobolowsky Scholarship

Awarded to a woman of academic achievement who wishes to enter the professions of law, public service, government, political science or women’s history. Ms. Tobolowsky devoted 26 years to lobbying and testifying before legislative committees for equal legal rights. The people of Texas voted for passage of Amendment 7, the Equal Legal Rights Amendment, on November 7, 1972. On that day BPW members chanted “Oh, Thank Heaven for Amendment Seven.” In memory of Ms. Tobolowsky, BPW Dallas Inc. provided the initial funding to create a scholarship to support women pursuing public policy education.
