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. 

To apply, please write about the ways you can address challenges that arise because of intersectionality in the US workforce.
