Scholarships for Women The economy gets tough on occasion. When it does, many adults choose to return to school alongside graduating high school seniors. Both types of students enter higher education for one purpose: to better their chances of getting a job that will help them through the hard times, or to get their dream job they have wanted to do for most of their lives. A major part of those students are female. Women represent over half the undergraduate class for Caucasians, and 62% of African American undergrads, but any ethnicity has the same slant between women and men. Some of these young ladies are fresh-faced eighteen-year-olds straight from high school with ambition to change the world, but others may have had to put their lives on hold in order to raise a child. Some women may be futhering their education at the graduate level too. This site provides women of all ages, sizes, and colors with the opportunity to obtain an excellent scholarship to help fund their higher education goals.
