We will award $60,000 in 2020. Individual awards are decided by the board. In the past we have awarded between $1,000 and $10,000.

Each year we award recipients with scholarships based on the application information, including the essay, merit, and need.  Individual awards range from $1,000 to $10,000. Recipients may re-apply for the scholarship annually.


Financial Burden

When the pursuit of higher education is beyond your financial capabilities, scholarships like ours can bridge the gap between debt and a viable education.



Passion. Leadership. Vision.

We are looking for exceptional women to lead their communities, improve lives, and innovate.  Above all, past awardees have impressed us with their intellect, drive, passion, and hope.


Applications for the 2021-2022 academic year are not yet open. Please come back April 1, 2021 for the launch of the new applications.

The W. Wright Foundation manages applications and verification of information, and board members decide on award recipients and award values.
