We often award more than $80,000 each year. Individual awards are decided by the board. In the past, we have awarded up to $10,000.

Each year we award recipients with scholarships based on the application information, including the essay, merit, and need.  Individual awards may range from $750 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.
