College Grants for Women

Women make up over 58 percent of the American college student body today.
However, it wasn’t too long ago that this wasn’t the case. Just a few decades ago, women were barred from enrollment at most American colleges.

Prior, American colleges were considered male territory. Well into the Mid-20th century, women were expected to fulfill traditional roles like motherhood. It wasn’t until 80s that America made any real progress in accepting women in colleges.

Today, women are enrolling and graduating from college in unprecedented numbers. The modern woman juggles important family life with high powered careers.

The availability of college grants and scholarships for high-achieving women played a critical role making this possible. A financial helping hand did its part in alleviating the unequal conditions and glass ceilings faced by women in tertiary education.

Many challenges still exist today. Women are still likely to face inequality in a society dominated by men. Fortunately, many grants and scholarships help women build their careers through college education

Although the are many college grants and scholarship programs open to all women, most programs look for women who come from non-traditional or underrepresented backgrounds, such as minority women or women who are not U.S. citizens.

Most programs look for applicants with especially strong academic records and glowing recommendations. Other programs, meanwhile, focus specifically on the financial needs of the applicant and her family. Given the great diversity of both private and public programs, most women can succeed in securing grant or scholarship funding with a little searching.

American Association of University Women (AAUW)

A top choice for women looking for college grants and scholarships is the AAUW. It is one of the largest sources of grants and scholarships for women looking toward college. The program looks for inspiring women who wish to pursue underrepresented careers, like teachers, scientists, and activists. The AAUW is especially interested in providing aid to financially distressed minority women.

The college grants and scholarships it offers are available for those pursuing both undergraduate and graduate studies. For instance, its Selected Professions Fellowship offers awards between $5,000 and $20,000 to women pursuing graduate studies in select underrepresented fields.

The AAUW also sponsors International Fellowships to non-U.S. citizens who would like to pursue graduate education and research in the United States. Log onto the AAUW’s website for a full list of the organization’s many college grant and scholarship opportunities, along with application requirements and deadline details.

Jeannette Rankin Foundation

The Jeannette Rankin Foundation Women’s Education Fund offers grants to disadvantaged women aged 35 and older. It awards $1,500 grants to qualifying applicants who have ambition and are in financial need.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Grants

Many organizations are very interested in helping women pursue education in STEM fields. For college applicants and current students interested in physics and the natural sciences, the Association for Women In Science is an excellent resource for college grants and scholarships.

Women interested in pursuing a career in the sciences should also consider the National Science Foundation‘s Women in Engineering and Computer and Information Science Awards. These scholarships are available to women studying STEM fields focused on computers and data science

Scholarships for Abuse Victims

Many organizations also seek to provide aid to battered-women and victims of violence. These programs are crucial for women who want to leave abusive relationships. Without the financial aid these organizations provide, some women might otherwise be forced to remain with men who hurt them and their children.

One example is The Sunshine Lady Foundation, which works to provide financial aid to victims of domestic violence through their Women’s Independence Scholarship Program. This national program provides much needed assistance to women who have overcome domestic violence and want to pursue a college education.

The R.O.S.E. Fund runs a similar college grant program for women who experienced violence. The R.O.S.E. Fund, however, gives first priority to women who have already completed at least a year of their college education.

Victims of violence might also seek help from the P.E.O. Program for Continuing Education.The organization provides financial assistance to needy applicants who postponed their college education to get their lives together, to support themselves, or to support their families.

Grants for the Arts

While many college grant opportunities are geared to women pursuing STEM education, there are several other college scholarship funds in place for women interested in the arts. The College Art Association provides financial assistance to nontraditional graduate students in their second-to-last year of their educational program.

The National Sculpture Society also offers scholarships to students pursuing art degrees in sculpture. You can either e-mail the organization directly ( or visit their website for additional program details.

Many women forget to check into professional organizations for college grant and scholarship information. What many women do not know is that these organizations usually have aid to give out, so women who are sure of their future career or major should look into their respective professional organization.

There are countless professional organizations in America; one example is the Society of Women Engineers. These financial aid programs can sometimes be competitive, so women who actively participate in the organization are most likely to secure funding.

Another example is the Women Chefs and Restaurateurs. This high-profile organization awards both scholarships and internships to its members. More details are available at their website.

Minority Grants and Scholarships

While there are scholarships available for all women, many scholarships prioritize recruiting minority or underprivileged women. African American and Latina women looking for grant and scholarship opportunities should find them to be in abundance.They can find many of these from organizations like United Negro College Fund or the Hispanic College Fund.

Be Diligent

Many grant programs, especially those sponsored by better-known organizations, are extremely competitive. They award funding to a very small percentage of applicants. If you find a scholarship that you qualify for, why not apply?

Regardless of your gender, you would be wise to apply for as many college grants and scholarships as possible. Applying for a college scholarship or grant can never hurt you. In fact, the more grants you apply for, the better your chances of winning the financial aid you need to graduate with your degree.

    I would like to know what direction you would suggest I go to find assistance for getting my doctorate in Medicine .
    Let me explain my situation and myself a bit. I am 47 years old and have managed to work and save over the last many years, until I achieved a bachelors in Nursing and masters degree in Nursing from IU. I asked for no help-I did it myself. Unfortunately this took many years and I am now 47. I have been a Nurse Practitioner in the field of Nephrology for about 5 years now and love what I do; I am wanting in the worst of ways to go on to pursue a doctorate.
    Medical school at my age is quite dangerous when looking at the kind of expenses ahead of me. It is important to know I will succeed, and I truly believe I will. I have the verbal support from doctors I presently work with to pursue my doctorate. I also have the grades I need to get in – an undergraduate GPA of 3.8 and a Masters GPA of 3.5 from IU University. I have done well in my field.
    Unfortunately at 47 I am fearful of taking on large loans as medical school incurs. I have saved everything I could for the past five years since getting my NP license to help me get through my doctorate, but I do not think I have enough yet. -Unfortuanately I do not believe that I could work either – Medical school like my masters and licensure as an NP will require all my energies.
    I have put myself through everyting else living on my savings not asking for help – but now I must ask for any assistance that I can. I would not ask for help even now except for the factors I mention above (my age with taking on such large loans).
    If you could direct me to the the most likely programs that I could apply to, I am going to ask for their assistance. I know I am wanting to do studies in a field that is much needed (primary care MD)- and so will help meet a growing need in our society. I believe also that I have proven I will be a success and that I will be responsible with any help that I receive. If I am given help to get through my doctorate I will return the favor and give significant money to help others as well.

    Thankyou for your help in advance,

Once I start going to school again I am also going to find myself a part time job to help me with the cost of living and everything else I will need. I have looked for scholarship and grant oppurtunities but so far have not been able to come up with much. I will continue looking though. If you have any information to help me out I would be so greatful. Thank you!

    Hi…I am 18 years old and just graduated from high school on June 8, 2012. On paper my stepfather makes too much annually therefore I do not qualify for FAFSA. I graduated in the top 10% of my class and I hava already been accepted to Texas A & M University. I’m going to take my basics and then enroll into the nursing program. I work part time and I am planning on working two jobs this summer. I have received two small scholarships but I still need more help. My mother has Multiple Sclerosis and she still works…but I’m not sure for how much longer. On paper my parents income looks great but in reality what’s coming in verses what’s going out doesn’t match up. My parents have a lot of medical expense. Please send me any information that may help me out. Thank you.

I would like to go to college to learn more and possibly even switch careers. I work full time and both of my kids are in daycare. I believe that my husband and I make too much money to get financial ad, however our bills owed (and we don’t leave in an outrageous house or anything like that) do not leave allot of room to pay for college. Is there any information that you could send that could help me on this new path? Any help is really appreciated! Thank you

A 4.0 is not easy to keep when you are a post-partum doula, or labor doula. You never know when your work will arrive, what day, what time of night. But she hangs in there. Please, if there is anyone or anything I can do to help her to remain in school fulltime and get through her graduate degree, let me know.

I am in desperate need of a grant/scholarship in order to continue my education. I can no longer take anymore student loans, and yet I can not afford school. I was denied financial aid because I make a little more than the required amount in order to receive aid. However, the government does not take into consideration bills, and everyday expenses. I can not afford to pay my loans back at this time, nor can I afford tuition. I am having a hard time grasping the fact that these grants are mostly in favor of minorities and non US citizens. Are there any grant or scholarship programs that are out there that can help a non minority American in the ways that minorities and non US citizens receive help?

The only thing to bring you down is yourself and if you let others tell you, you can not do that. I was told by my mother that she would not help with anything for my daughter. And that my marriage would last a year. I have been married for almost 2 years and have no signs of that changing. We are trying to grow our family but still no excuse for me not going to college. That has been my excuse for the past year. Others I was to into my boyfriend and I had a miscarriage and I became depressed and let everything get to me. I wasn’t myself for a long time after that.

My mom and dad claim me, my baby, my sister (in HS) and my brother (3rd year of college) as dependents and fully support us. FAFSA says because of their income, they should be contributing up to 100% of our college costs (huh?) so I can’t get federal financial aid and the college says we haven’t established intent for residency after 14 months so I’m out of the running for State aid. I was forced to drop all but one class. 🙁 My parents have two kids in college, 6 mouths to feed, clothe and provide for and two mortgage payments (our old home has been on the market for over a year). They can’t afford more and are already accumulating debt just to keep my brother enrolled. I need some serious help.

    The cost of education for these positions is outrageous, thus eliminating a large portion of the already poor and stressed people who long for a better life. People who are portrayed as lazy and free loaders. Nothing could be farther from the truth!

    I am almost finished with my courses, and now have been accepted with the Solicitor’s office for internship.

    I lost my job in 2011 and have not been able to find a job. I have sent out many resumes, and have done some interviewing. Since I lost my job, I was able to hold on to my apartment, car, and kept going to school. Money ran out, lost my apartment, lost my car and had to move to another state to live with family due to no place to live here in South Carolina where I had been attending school. I managed to connect with an ex co-worker who was gracious enough to say she would rent me a room so I may come back to Columbia, South Carolina and continue school. Again, I am coming to the end of my program, and funds from Fafsa are just about up. I am a single woman, divorced and raised my family. I am now struggling to stay in school so I may receive my degree and be able to support myself. My dream to work in the legal world is almost accomplished, with the intership with the Solicitor’s office.
    I have worked and paid taxes all my adult life, and now trying to follow the American dream with a Bachelor Degree which I am almost done with.
    I am asking is there any monies any where to help me pay the school for these last few courses.

    Very much appreciated!!

    Okay, so let me get this straight… Women are considered a “minority” (sorry, this is the term that is used online to excuse this) in many of these cases, yet 58% to 42% women to men ratio exists in the college education system. And somehow, the men… errr, excuse me, the non-minority men, aka, the white guys, have no such support system such as this? I think this is sexist and not politically correct. This is embarrassing and holding the (non-minority) men back. Yet somehow, this is okay to everyone?!?!?! I did no one an injustice. I believe people are people, yet this sort of thing continues to perpetuate some sort of race or gender gap that truly doesn’t exist anymore. An example of a rebuttal that will be (or now would have been) the first out of the first five responses is the so called pay gap. I run a company. If I could get a female who is twice as qualified to do the job for half as much, I would. I could care less if you are male or female; black, red, yellow, or white; gay or straight; 7′ 4″ or 4′ 7″. I really don’t care, and many others feel the same way. We will take the most qualified person who will take the pay regardless.

    So my question to you is: Where are the college grants for men? IF this was truly a fair and just society, based on equality, why do you not offer a program for men? Why can’t I leave my job and get a grant to become a Dentist — because I am a man and not a woman?

    Seems like the tide for equality has gone too far to right a wrong, especially one I am being punished for, considering I had zero to do with it. I believe all humans are created equal, and all should have basic rights, notwithstanding, a site such as yours. I see on the bar to the left, women, women, mothers, grants, low income, etc. So men and women can apply for the general grants, but only women can apply for the top three listed. Double standard. One day, the shunning of men in this country, in this way, will haunt our future generations and history will show in the future textbooks why this was wrong.



    PS: If I change my name to Joan, do you think I could apply for one of the top two?

    I’m happily married, with two beautiful little boys, but I need to go back to school. My husband is successful in his position and makes too much money for me to qualify for aid. However, he refuses to help me pay for my degree because my chosen profession (parole officer) doesn’t make enough money to meet his standards. I don’t even know where to begin my journey.

    Hello, I am an unemployed mom and married to a verbally abusive and controlling man. I used to be employed but not for 3 years now. I have severe PTSD,Panic D/O, ADD, Depression, and I havent been able to get the courage to seek out a program that will enable me to care for my 8 month old son, gain financial independence, and achievable in a very short time…the catch is it;s bartending school with guaranteed placement, Its 2 weeks long and for the first time I see the light at the end of the tunnel but I have to pay the amount upfront before attending. It’s only 500$ but I have nothing. We have lived with my father in law in a crowded room as he helps us with shelter I also provide full time care assistance and household chores. I have no idea if theres anything that is out there that would help pay for this. I have no credit and no family and really no way to earn the money as my husband makes any work I try to find impossible to complete hes controlling. I am 37 and feel like my life has been over for so long its been my son that has brought me back to the light and determined to fight for a chance and this would give us financial independence as well as give me a sense of self worth and ability to pursue more endevours in the future. I just want us to have a car and money for gas and clothes to buy…does anyone know of ANY assistance in this type of course work or any other suggestions regarding a way for me to come up with the $ asap so I can just complete the program? Thanks for any advice anyone has.

    November 2011 our daughter was a freshman in college on a partial volleyball scholarship at Regis University in Denver. While at a “friends” house with other teammates she was violently raped by a basketball player. The next day was spent in the hospital. We reported the rape but the school put her in counseling and condemned her. She was then ostracized by her coach. She tried to stay in school but was tormented by the rapist and his friends. She couldn’t go to class and was having a difficult time functioning. five years later she was wanting to go back to school but with her 11,000. In back loans she was denied.
    My question… any scholarships for victims or any waivers on past student loans? By the way the rapist graduated with his masters

    I’ve been in attending Strayer University White Marsh since 2005, with some hardships that took away from school and now trying my hardest to graduate. I was finally at the step of putting one foot on the stage of completing my classes to graduate, which I was notified after these classes by my college that my FASFA wasn’t applied during my semesters and I wasn’t allowed to take anymore classes until I furnish the college with my husbands IR Documentation. It took much time to gather these documents of my husband being on Disability Retirement, due to us filing separately. I couldn’t get into his business due to us filing separately. I finally was given the requested information from the IRS and gave information to Strayer, who informed me that it was to late. I received an invoice 5 months later stating I had to pay cash of $5669.92 for the four classes that I had taken the winter and spring of 2016 and be prepared that I would be given more classes added to me, because their syllabus changes every year. I’ve tried all aspects of gaining these finances, which resulted in no resolutions for resolving this matter to graduate. If I can gain this money I can finish my classes and prayfully graduate in April of 2018.

    I am a 30 year old female and have been attending college since I was about 23. I have had to take semesters off here and there because of my bipolar. Some days I don’t have the effort to get out of bed to attend class. I think I have finally been on the correct doses of medication along with exercise and the right diet which has been able to motivate me to get up in order to attend class. I also work 60-70 hours a week at a full time job that doesn’t pay as much as I need which is why I have to work so much. I am maxed out on government loans so either have to pay for the rest of my school out of pocket or get private loans which I don’t want to do which is why I would like to receive grants and scholarships to go to school.

    I am a financial aid administrator. When searching for grants and/or scholarships, I always recommend starting off with the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Almost all accredited post-secondary schools are eligible to receive federal funds whether it be in the form of grants or loans. While I don’t recommend loans unless absolutely necessary, at least the interest rates are low. From there, you need to do some research on your own or ask the financial aid administrator of the the school your interested in for guidance. Some scholarships require an essay submission but if your writing skills are weak, I suggest going to a local community college for help polishing your essay.

I’ve wanted to be a vet since I was around 6 years old and It’s always been a dream of mine to work with animals. On all of the TV shows on animal planet, and in any clinic that I’ve seen, there is never a female veterinarian. I want to prove society that women can make it up there into the medical field. I will not stop until I get to the point where I want to be in my life. I have the mind set of never giving up.

    I came back after I turned 18 I worked continuously for 8 years supporting myself gathering skills in multiple fields of expertise. In 2012 I earned my GED.
    I decided I would no longer be worried I cant make my rent and I’ll start college this year. My parents didn’t graduate so this is a huge feat for myself. I just took an accuplacer exam to see where my education level would be at and the Proctor told me my scores were really good for someone out of school for almost ten years. I felt so proud of myself.
    I found out that I am not eligible for the Pell Grant and would am putting myself out here if any person, or organization would have compassion on someone who has been adopted, homeless, and aggressively supporting myself.
