Scholarships for Women

Sure, there are plenty of websites that list HUNDREDS of available scholarships for women and quick applications.


  • Are they legit?
  • Are they geared towards you and your needs?
  • Are the deadlines even updated?

I decided to make this post because those sites have sooo many options of scholarships for women, that it can just be overwhelming!


That can be ultimately less helpful and more time consuming than it should be.

Which is why:

I organized and compiled all of the most current scholarships for women, for YOU!

This article contains scholarships for females that have submission deadlines for early Winter 2019 – late Winter 2019.

Some can even be reapplied to each term! So you may see some that I labeled as “Deadlines Vary”.


Many application essays can seem a bit repetitive.

So, my tip…

In order to avoid writing the same thing over and over again, you can always save your essay draft and change it to fit into your next scholarship applications theme. It’ll save you time and it’s just one less hassle out of the way.

Another thing:

Don’t be afraid to ask for help when applying for scholarships!

If you are struggling with a certain topic on your application – go see your student advisor, financial aid advisor, a professor or even your fellow classmates.

They would all LOVE to help! They want to see you take advantage of free money for school expenses.

Alrighty, now let’s get down to business –
