Higher education is a leading factor in creating economic opportunities for women today’s competitive workforce. Evidence shows the more education a woman gains, the greater her odds are of maximizing income and minimizing poverty. A woman with a four-year college degree earns twice as much as a woman with a high school diploma and nearly three time more than a woman who didn’t complete high school.
Obtaining a higher education also has benefits for society as it increases tax contributions and reduces public assistance. Higher education can also lead to a healthier and more balanced life. Our recipients include student parents, single mothers returning to school and other marginalized populations. Awards are based on a combination of academic merit and financial need.
