Scholarships for Women

three hurrying girls running for college class concept for scholarships for womenMarch is women’s history month. In an effort to celebrate ‘Girl Power’, several scholarship providers aim to fund higher education specifically for women. Popular initiatives that award financial aid exclusively for females include colleges and universities, government sources, religious entities, minority advocacy groups, professional organizations, or corporate sponsors.

Scholarship funding can be found across all fields of study. Yet many scholarship programs aim to attract, encourage, and support women pursuing degrees in fields that are dominated by men. Particularly, the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) field. STEM scholarships are funded by the federal government, local state governments, colleges and universities, and other professional institutions.

We’ve compiled a few examples of some scholarships for women available on ScholarshipOwl. Review the detailed requirements, award amount, and deadline for each scholarship. If you need more help applying for scholarships while in college, register for a free ScholarshipOwl account.
