  • Scholarship Description
  • In 1919, the United States Congress passed legislation that would redefine our country forever – an amendment to the Constitution giving women the right to vote. In August 1920, this legislation was ratified by the states and became the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. To honor this piece of history, the Network of enlightened Women (NeW) Essay Contest gives women the opportunity to reflect on and write about the importance of this right and this moment that changed America forever. The NeW Essay Contest is open to high school seniors and college students. Writers must be a high school senior or currently enrolled in an undergraduate institution in the United States at the time of entry. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
