Women's College Scholarships, Grants & Fellowships

To provide scholastic and career opportunities to women across the nation, numerous scholarship providers have created scholarships for women in an effort to help them get a college education. Women may comprise about fifty percent of the population, but they are still minorities when it comes to occupying top-level positions. This is especially true when it comes to typically male-dominated careers in the fields of engineering, information technology and the sciences. With the help of competitive fellowships and college scholarships, women will be eliminating career stereotypes and gender wage gaps in no time.

Check out the scholarships and fellowships listed below for award options you may be eligible to receive. To find additional information about scholarships, grants, internships and fellowships that can help women attend their colleges of choice, try conducting a free college scholarship search.
