Financial need will be considered in determining award amounts.

Scholarships for Women – EduBirdie

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, total enrollment for women in higher education institutions increased by 21 percent during the last decade. There were 2.9 million freshmen who joined post-secondary education for the first time in 2019 and currently women constitute 56% of all enrolled college students. At the same time, women hold almost two-thirds of cumulative student loan debt that reached almost $1.46 trillion in 2019. In addition to a typically lesser level of salaries paid to women, it means that more women have to study in debt and face limited possibilities after graduation because of the necessity to return loans instead of focusing on the desired career and family. Though there is one more opportunity for women to enjoy real gender equality and study without taking huge loans and paying too much – scholarships.
