A Match Made In Heaven
The Watermark Conference for Women has partnered with ScholarMatch to champion underserved young women who will be first in their families to go to college. This partnership not only supports student’s success as they navigate the college application process and make their way through college and into professional careers; it also provides dynamic community engagement opportunities to conference attendees and sponsors. There are several easy and authentic ways that you can get involved!
ScholarMatch students are diverse, talented, highly-motivated, and multi-lingual! You or you HR team can filter and search on our Student Gallery to quickly view and message students who would be a great fit for internships at your company.

Too many first-generation students drop-out of college because of financial limitations and emergencies beyond the cost of tuition. ScholarMatch’s targeted scholarship funds ensure that students can buy textbooks, pay housing deposits, engage in social activities, and more. The Watermark Conference for Women has supported college scholarships for two young women from the Bay Area, Jialin and Ella. The Conference is excited to follow these students’ progress over the next four years as they pursue their bachelor’s degrees.
Your generous support allows me to pursue my dreams. Your belief in me encourages me to persevere. I am, without a doubt, grateful for this community.
These students are among the brightest and most thoughtful people I have met. Working with them truly is a privilege.
I have learned that I should never give up on myself. I have come this far and I will never quit. It is not in my character.
You have no idea what it means to have your support. It motivates me to give back to my community.
