The mission of the Her Next Step scholarship program is to provide meaningful financial assistance to women who have determined that further education, training, or skill development is essential to their achievement, but find their lack of sufficient resources creating a significant barrier. A secondary aspect of our mission is to help educate and engage Hernando county’s business and professional community as to the assets members of this group represent as potential key employees and indeed leaders of the growing, evolving, vibrant, free society that align with Hernando County Republican Party’s vision of Hernando county’s future.

We created this program as a substantive demonstration of Hernando County Republican Party’s commitment to endorse, honor and where practical support those who use their abilities to build a better future for themselves, their families and their community. Our goal is two-fold: help the scholarship recipients achieve their career aspirations and demonstrate leadership in supporting opportunities to build a stronger Hernando County for all its citizens.
