I thought the title of this blog would get your attention.

Listen to this offer from Zions Bank. It is looking to give away grant money, up to $3,000 to women who excel in various fields of work. These are called Smart Money grants and one will be awarded to a smart lady in each of these fields:

Small business start-up and expansion
Community development
Continuing education and teacher support
Child and elder care
Health and human services
Arts and culture
Applications are available online at or by calling 1-800-737-6586. Applications are due July 2, 2010.
To give you an idea of who has won in past years. Last year’s grant winners included a lavender farm business; a music nonprofit that performs at nursing homes; an artisan program for refuges; a pregnancy support center; an organization for grandparents who are caregivers; and a clothing donation organization benefiting women re-entering the work force.
So, ladies if you think you would qualify for one of these grants, don’t let the opportunity pass you by. Go for it…it’s a smart thing to do, free money for smart women.
Have a good weekend, Carolyn
