While the world has seen great progress with women’s rights and gender equality over the past century, there is more to be done.
Today, there is still quite a large gap between men and women when it comes to income, wealth, debt, poverty levels, discrimination, abuse, domestic responsibilities, and the opportunity to take on leadership roles –– all of which are greater difficulties for women of color.
As one small step toward moving the world in the right direction, The Penny Collins Scholarship will support Black women on their educational journey. The award will be given to three young Black high school senior women who plan to spend their careers being a part of the solution to make the world a better place.

Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Aug 31, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
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.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
