  • 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.

Schools Offering Tuition Discounts This Fall

August 14, 2020

by Izzy Hall

The coronavirus pandemic has affected nearly everything about college – and for some schools, that includes tuition. Beyond tuition freezes or removing application fees, these colleges have gone one step further in reducing costs for their students. A tuition discount recognizes not only the economic difficulties many students and their families are facing due to COVID-19, but also acknowledges that mostly or entirely online classes are generally not perceived as being worth the same amount of money as a full residential college experience. Some of these institutions also plan to offer additional scholarship funding to the students who need it most. [...]

College Athletic Conferences Make Final Call on Fall Seasons

August 13, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Earlier this summer, the Big Ten Conference announced they would be playing only in-conference football games if the Fall 2020 football season went ahead. But last week, they and the Pac-12 conference both announced that Fall 2020 athletics would be cancelled due to concerns about student athlete safety. Meanwhile, their brethren Power 5 conferences to the South – The Atlantic Coast, Big 12 and Southeastern conferences – have decided to go ahead with the Fall 2020 football season. [...]

Student-Run Food Banks Making a Difference on Campus

August 11, 2020

by Izzy Hall

You may be surprised to learn that many of your fellow college students struggle with hunger. About 1 in 5 students are affected by food insecurity. In a normal time, not getting enough to eat can impact students’ grades, health and ability to finish their degrees. And a loss of campus jobs, housing and meal plans due to the pandemic puts more students in danger of going without the food they need. That’s where student-run food banks and pantries come in. [...]
