50 College Scholarships for Women that Rule!

50 College Scholarships for Women that RuleFinding scholarships for women that work for you can be tough.

Sure, there’s plenty of websites that list HUNDREDS of available scholarships for women and quick applications. But…

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

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


Ultimately less helpful and more time consuming than it should be.

Which is why:

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

This article contains scholarships that have submission deadlines for Fall 2018 – Summer 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 and see you take advantage of free money for school expenses.

Alrighty, now let’s get down to business –
