Despite decades of progress, women still face many obstacles when pursuing education and their careers.
In recent years, women have begun to outnumber men on college campuses, with men now making up just more than 40% of student bodies. This next generation of educated women will be key in boosting representation in male-dominated fields, such as finance, engineering, and other STEM sectors.
This scholarship seeks to support low-income women so they can afford to pursue high education and the careers of their dreams.
Any female high school or undergraduate student who is low-income may apply for this scholarship.

Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
