Celebrate Women's History Month: Scholarships for Female High School Seniors
Liz Montenegro

During the month of March we celebrate Women’s History Month! This celebration gives us the opportunity to recognize our country’s female trailblazers whose contributions and fight for gender equality have impacted today’s society in tremendous ways, benefiting women and girls nationwide and beyond.

According to the U.S. Department of State, “every year on March 8th, the United States joins the world in recognizing International Women’s Day by celebrating the leadership, strength, and courage of women and girls.” Now more than any other time in history, females have more opportunities to advance professionally and become the next generation’s leaders.

For many young women, the next big step toward building their future is earning their degree. If you know a current female high school senior, please share these scholarship opportunities with them so that they can be able to graduate and launch their career with little to no college debt!
