What is ABWA?  The American Business Women's Association was founded in 1949.  We have been changing women's lives, one woman at a time for over 68 years!  ABWA supports women throughout their careers by providing opportunities to hone leadership skills, access to unsurpassed professional development resources, and national recognition in the largest network of working women in the country.  We are a sisterhood of women who work together to achieve personal and professional growth in a safe environment and to provide mentorship for the journey.

Since 1953, the Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Fund (SBMEF) has been providing grants and scholarships to women pursuing both undergraduate and graduate degrees, as well as ongoing professional development to support career advancement.
