The O Wines Opportunity for Success Scholarship provides scholarships to low-income, capable young women so they can reach their greatest potential through education.
Stacy Lill and Kathy Johanson established O Wines in 2006 in Woodinville, Wash. They wanted to educate, motivate, and give young women the confidence and opportunity to succeed. From 2008 to 2012, O Wines granted more than $125,000 in scholarships awards of $500 or more. O Wines was acquired by Ste. Michelle Wine Estates in 2012.
Each Opportunity for Success Scholarship is worth $20,000, and is awarded in $5,000 increments annually over four years to each recipient who continues to meet eligibility requirements. The foundation warded eleven scholarships in 2013, and announced recipients in May 2013.
