Our vision is to inspire a better world by empowering women through education. Receiving a Scholar Grant is much more than a financial reward. Grant recipients enter a Sisterhood of JRF Scholars, where they have access to coaching, case management and the support of alumnae and others who are actively transforming their futures. JRF Scholars far exceed their demographic’s national average in continuing their education and achieving their degree.
Continuing Jeannette Rankin’s commitment to creating better futures for American women, our Jeannette Rankin National Scholar Grant provides unrestricted non-tuition funding and support to women and nonbinary students across the country. Scholar Grant recipients are age 35 and older, demonstrate financial need, and are pursuing a technical or vocational education, an associate’s degree, or a first bachelor’s degree at an accredited U.S. institution. National Scholar Grants are distributed directly to recipients and are renewable for up to five years. Dollar amounts will vary.
