Women's Guide for Paying for College

With options ranging from institutional scholarships and federal loans to organizational grants and work-study programs, women pursuing post-secondary education can often secure funding from multiple sources to finance their collegiate experience. For many female students, however, the problem is finding scholarships catering specifically to their interests and goals. The guide below makes this process easier by highlighting the type of women’s funding programs available, providing insight on how to find and apply for scholarships, and giving advice on how to seek out unconventional funding sources.

Financial aid doesn’t always come from large-scale companies or organizations. Many sources of scholarships are small, local-based companies looking to help those in their communities. Some scholarships are very particular, and some much more broad in their requirements, with something available for nearly every skill or demographic.
