Scholarships for Women

It wasn't always easy to find scholarships for women, but today there are many sources for free financial aid for women who want to pursue higher education. In fact, currently there are more women than men attending college and opportunities abound for women across many schools and majors. Most noteably, there are some fields where women are considered to be underrepresented - such as in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields. If you happen to be a woman who excels at and is interested in a scientific major or concentration, this could be a great opportunity for you as technical schools work to get more female students on campus and in their labs. Additionally, there are many philanthropic organizations who are specifically targeting this demographic and offer scholarships for women aspiring to careers in engineering, computer science and many other similar fields.

Many scholarships are created with a specific purpose - whether it is placing females in science programs, leadership positions or advanced degree programs. Many scholarships are intended to encourage female students to not only attend college, but to succeed thereafter. A number of them award students who demonstrate leadership abilities or entrepreneurial spirit prior to attending college. Others reward women who have been out of school and are now planning to return. Similarly, scholarship opportunities encourage women excelling as undergraduate students to consider graduate work, professorships, and other highly-skilled positions. Many scholarships encourage women to try their hand at what might be considered "counter-culture" 50 or 60 years ago when many women didn't even pursue higher education, much less become doctors and engineers.

Check out the scholarships and fellowships listed below for award options you may be eligible for. For additional information about scholarships, grants, internships and fellowships that cater to women, try conducting a free scholarship search.
