The Young Women’s Alliance scholarship program is a key component for the organization to give back to our community. By improving access to post-secondary attainment, we are a part of the systemic change needed to create a more equitable future for young women. We know at YWA that we must be intentional and strategic when it comes to finding future women leaders and breaking down barriers that stand in the way of them pursuing their education goals. The YWA scholarship program is the access that underserved young women need to become future leaders of tomorrow.
The Young Women’s Alliance Foundation has offered scholarships that help transform the lives of young women in the Austin area. These scholarships helped the recipients attain their educational and career goals and meet their financial needs. YWA is committed to reaching young women, specifically graduating high school seniors in Del Valle ISD, including: those who identify with the LGBTQIA community; Black, Indigenous, and students of color; first generation students; students with disabilities; and students from low-income families, who are pursuing a post-secondary education at any accredited trade-school program, 2 year associates program, or 4 year college in the United States.
