Scholarships for Women

Where it was once rare to see women in higher education, there are currently more women than men attending college. In our experience, the ratio of females to males registered at Scholarships.com is roughly 2:1, favoring females. Nonetheless, there are some fields where women remain underrepresented - such as in STEM fields. There are organizations dedicated to increasing the number of females in science, engineering, math, and technology, through scholarships. Scholarships are great motivators in seeking higher career opportunities, or following academic endeavors without taking out many student loans.

Female-based scholarships are created with a specific purpose - whether it is placing females in leadership positions or advanced degree programs. 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 smaller percentage of female workers. 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.
