Bestcolleges.com - Scholarships for Women
Compared to men, women receive fewer grant dollars and rely more on private, unsubsidized loans to pay for college. Given that women still earn 79 cents for every dollar earned by men, a gender gap exists in the effective burden of student loan debt. This can impact long-term financial security for women as they’re left with fewer resources for critical investments such as home purchase and saving for retirement. We give information to women on how to find and apply for scholarships, grants, and fellowships, with additional tips on saving money in college. We also list a number of scholarships available specifically to women, organized by common fields of study.
