Did you know there are MILLIONS of dollars in scholarships just for women? Of course you did, but sometimes students forget that Fafsa is only one of several roads to financial aid. So today I’m reminding you that you can find quality uncompetitive scholarships and avoid the other so called “Competitive Scholarships” with a long history of winners that all seem to be mustache people.
Opportunities such as The Young Women of Distinction Scholarship Award (also linked to their pic above) are much needed especially today with the inflated price of tuition outpacing US inflation itself -_- not to mention real life unfortunate circumstances we all go through.
When exploring gender specific scholarships look for additional unique parameters. Yes, scholarships and grants for women eliminates an entire gender as competition but “women” itself is a general category; for example:
minorities look for a minority scholarship, like scholarships for black women plus local or community specific scholarships are even better increasing your chances of winning drastically. (for help with scholarship essays)
