Scholarships for Women

Where it was once rare to see women in higher education, there are currently more women than men attending college. Despite the progress, there are still inequalities between genders. On average, most women earn less than men and occupy a smaller percentage of high-paying jobs than men. While the majority of enrolled students are women, organizations are still seeking to close the gap in gender inequity through academic scholarships. Scholarships are great motivators in seeking higher career opportunities, or following academic endeavors without taking many student loans.

Female-based scholarships have a specific goal in mind, whether it is placing females in leadership positions, doctoral programs, or male-dominated industries and companies. Many scholarships for women are intended to encourage female students to not only attend college, but to succeed thereafter. A number of scholarships for women 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 seek fields such as math, science, and technology, which house a very small percentage of female workers. For example, several scholarships exist to entice women into careers such as engineering and business. Specific companies such as IBM and Microsoft also offer scholarships for women to encourage recipients for post-graduation application.

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.
