  • Scholarship Description
  • The Women With Promise Scholarship Program began in 2018 as part of our commitment to make a difference in the lives of North Texas women. Our goal is to offer women the opportunity to begin or restart their journey toward a college degree. Support is available for full or part-time students from Dallas and Collin counties attending or planning to attend educational programs at accredited institutions of higher learning in Dallas or Collin counties. Also, they must have a nonprofit organization as a sponsor (ie Genesis Women's Shelter, Young Life, Agape, Promise House, etc). First priority candidates are women who have the greatest emotional and financial challenges as they gain the work skills necessary to support themselves and/or their families. Our funds target women who are in desperate financial situations and need both an education and our funds to assist them in developing skills to elevate their future work opportunities.

    Scholarships are awarded to assist with tuition, books and fees and generally range from $250 to $5,000. Scholarship funds are paid directly to the institution prior to the start of the course. The number of scholarships awarded per semester or term is dependent upon the number of sponsors and donations received. Applications are taken on a rolling basis so apply today! For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

University of California Seeks New Standardized Test

May 27, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Across the country, both private and public institutions of higher education have announced that they will be test-optional for students applying to enter school in the fall of 2021. This policy, instituted as a response to coronavirus cancellations of standardized testing dates, comes with the caveat that it would only exist during next year’s round of admissions. But the University of California system has gone in an entirely different direction by announcing that will no longer require the SAT or ACT for all California state applicants. [...]
