"Women on Par" Scholarship Program, provided by the EWGA Foundation, was established in 2007 to provide financial assistance to "non-traditional" female students. These scholarships are intended for women, age 30 and older, who are attending a college or university for the first time or returning to school after an absence to complete their technical/vocational, Associate or Bachelor's degree. The scholarships are designed to help these women get "on par," or get an equal footing, with their peers, friends and other women who have had a chance to complete their college education.
