Women's College Scholarships, Grants & Fellowships

To provide scholastic and career opportunities to women nationwide, numerous scholarship providers have created scholarships for women. Women make up for more than fifty percent of the population, yet are still the minority when it comes to occupying upper-level positions. This is particularly evident in male-dominant fields such as engineering, information technology, and the sciences. With the help of competitive fellowships and college scholarships, women are eliminating career stereotypes and gender wage gaps.
