EDUCATION SUPPORT AWARDS

The 2020-21 application period is now closed!  

Awardees are notified by phone or email in late fall. Shortly after recipient notification, the list of awardees will be posted on the Awardee page of this site. The Foundation will contact awardees only. We are not able to contact each applicant about the status of her application.

Awards are disbursed in two separate installments (one each semester) over the academic year, and may be used for direct school expenses or for living expenses while you are enrolled in an educational program. 

Awardees will be selected based on:

  1. Financial need;

  2. Personal circumstance;

  3. Educational path;

  4. Vocational or occupational goals; and

  5. Service or activist or civic goals. 

In 2020, the Foundation will offer five Education Support Awards of up to $5000 each to assist low-income women with children who are pursuing education or training.
