The Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund (SCSF) was founded on the belief that any motivated individual in need should have the opportunity to further his or her education. By removing some of the financial burdens associated with going to, surviving in, and graduating from college, the SCSF plays a vital role in increasing college access and success for many motivated yet underserved youth and young adults. The SCSF provides individual grants, paid directly to the educational institution, to every student who qualifies and reapplies yearly, from admission to graduation. The grant can be used to cover tuition expenses and related supplemental educational expenses such as books, lab fees, travel and select costs of living. All Shawn Carter Scholars are required to “give back” by conducting community service and by serving as mentors to younger, aspiring Shawn Carter Scholars.

Women’s Independence Scholarship – Since its inception the Women’s Independence Scholarship Program has awarded nearly $44 million in scholarships to thousands of women across the United States. WISP is available nationally to women who have left an abusive domestic situation and who are pursuing an education designed to provide economic independence for themselves and their children. Link: wispinc.org/
COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR OLDER WOMEN – In recent years, a number of specialized scholarships have been created for older women, the best resource to find possible opportunities for women is to contact their State Education Bureau or Federal Student Aid Information Center and find out if there are any programs for their age. Here is the list of the names of the agencies and foundations that offer grants and scholarships for older or mature women according to their age, which help them to defray the costs involved. Link: www.scholarshipsforwomen.net/older-students/
NATIVE AMERICAN WOMEN SCHOLARSHIPS – In today’s tough economic climate, it is virtually impossible to find a job without some type of higher education. Employers are looking to protect their investments by only hiring new employees that they know have the right amount of education to complete the job successfully.
Unfortunately, tuition rates continue to rise every year making it nearly impossible for some students, especially female Native Americans, to afford a college education. As students are forced to work full-time, sometimes more than one job, just to pay their college education-related expenses, the prospect of earning a higher education is becoming bleaker for female Native Americans. Thankfully, there are many scholarships and grants for female Native Americans available that can help reduce the financial burden associated with attending college. Female Native Americans are often underrepresented within the higher education community. Typically, from a low socio-economic society, female Native Americans do not have access to the resources other student groups do that make it easier for them to attend college. Because of this harsh reality, female Native American students need to search high and low for scholarships and grants to help them afford a higher education. Link: www.scholarshipsforwomen.net/native-americans/
QuestBridge is a powerful platform that connects the nation’s brightest students from low-income backgrounds with leading institutions of higher education and further opportunities. We are an aggregator of excellence. By facilitating these exchanges, QuestBridge aims to increase the percentage of talented low-income students attending the nation’s best universities and the ranks of national leadership itself. What we know – Abundant low-income talent exists. Annually, approximately 30,000 talented low-income students nationally are academically qualified to attend the nation’s best colleges, but the majority of them don’t even apply to one selective college. Already in the system, there is abundant raw talent and tens of thousands of academically prepared talented low-income students in America to match top low-income students with every full-need scholarship that top American colleges provide. There need be no academic gap if we can bring our best low-income students into the system. What we believe – Intelligence, talent, motivation, nobility, and grit are distributed across the entire economic spectrum of America’s youth. Many elite colleges and universities, Fortune 500 corporations, and top graduate schools sincerely strive to embrace the country’s most talented, determined, and self-motivated students. But they often lack the reach to attract appropriate candidates from low-income populations. America has an undiscovered population of talented low-income youth. Some of our brightest young minds are well-suited to opportunities, but unconnected for simple lack of information, mentorship, and other surmountable barriers. Link: www.questbridge.org/
SCHOLARSHIPS FOR HISPANIC WOMEN – Hispanic and Latinx scholarships can be offered by a number of companies, organizations, and schools. This results in a much more diverse scholarship program.
The Pew Research Center reports that Educational attainment among U.S. Latinx & Hispanic students has “reached its highest level in the last three decades.” Dropout rates are decreasing while college attendance has skyrocketed in the past few years. Hispanic students are reported to be the largest minority group on U.S university campuses and in general and they are less likely to have student debt. This is because of access to scholarships, federal aid, and attendance at universities with cheaper tuition fees. Some scholarships have different essays or videos as a requirement – the common thread here is that they are for those that have or can claim Hispanic or Latino descent. We acknowledge and help find awards to honor the accomplishments of Hispanic and Latinx students in the US. Although there has been an increasing number of Hispanic and Latinx college students in recent years, they still face difficult challenges on the way to graduation. Financial aid (especially scholarships and grants) is critical to Hispanic and Latinx students in the U.S. who are struggling with rising costs of living, low wages, and even state divestment in higher education. A lot of Hispanic and Latinx students are the first in their families to go to college. These students face significant challenges such as high dropout rates and a lack of financial support. College tuition is more expensive than ever and many times these students end up with mounting debt as well as limited employment opportunities and earning potential compared to those that may not face such barriers. The following guide will explore scholarships ideas for Hispanic and Latinx students that can assist them in finding success. Link: www.edsmart.org/scholarships-for-hispanic-latino-students/
GRANTS & SCHOLARSHIPS FOR DISABLED WOMEN – Because there are many more disabled women attending colleges than in the past, many might be interested in the scholarships specifically designed for them, as well other scholarships for all disabled students, men and women. Because of the expensive medical costs they face every day. In addition to the specific scholarships for disabled women and all disabled students, disabled women can also receive help from the standard scholarships that are for all students.

FREE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN – African American women who live in the United States can find many sources of funding to pursue a college education through scholarships and grants. Many of these scholarships are granted specifically to African American women. Other scholarships are granted more generally to women of any race or are granted to African Americans of either gender. The qualifications for these scholarships vary greatly. Some scholarships are meant for potential scholars in specific states or even specific counties within a state. Many scholarships have been established to address worker shortages in specific fields. Link: www.scholarshipsforwomen.net/african-american/
SCHOLARSHIPS FOR ASIAN WOMEN – When it comes time to head to off to university, money can be a major issue. Finding the right scholarship or grant will do wonders toward alleviating the financial load.
Navigating the maze of available scholarships can be a real headache. Not only is it difficult to find out what scholarships are available, finding out exactly what scholarships will cover also takes some hunting. Some scholarships only partly cover educational costs, while others may cover everything including books and boarding. Careful research is necessary to sort out what awards best suited for the applicant. For Asian women, the following list of available opportunities may be a valuable resource when it is time to apply for funding. Link: www.scholarshipsforwomen.net/asian/
LAW SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS FOR WOMEN – Women who aspire to attend law school may find private scholarships, fellowships, and grants to subsidize the expense of law school. The typical law school tuition for two semesters is anywhere from $15,000 to $45,000 a year. The average law student graduates with over $200,000 in student loans to pay for this tuition, so it is essential for women in law to alleviate the cost as much as possible.

MINORITY SCHOLARSHIPS – A large percentage of the U.S. college population is comprised of minority students from various backgrounds and races, including African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic and Latinos, Asian and Pacific Islanders, and so forth. To qualify as minority student, you don’t need to be a first-generation immigrant or the first person in your family to go to college. Specific organizations qualify women or LGBTQ students as minorities. Scholarships for minority students vary in their criteria and are not limited to race or ethnicity. Typically, multi-ethnic students may qualify for at least one of the listed minority scholarships. Make sure to see if you qualify for more than one type of minority scholarship by conducting a free scholarship search. Minority scholarships are not limited to United States residents. Students outside the United States may apply as well, whether they are studying at home or abroad. Some scholarships may not even require U.S. citizenship, so be sure to check the official rules carefully when applying for scholarships. The types of scholarships for minority students vary from academic merit scholarships to athletic scholarships to need-based scholarships. When searching for financing opportunities, take into consideration your skills, talents, and areas of need. Scholarships are not limited to college institutions either – there are specific charitable organizations, corporations, professional associations, and minority advocacy groups that are dedicated to serving underrepresented student populations.

NSF SCHOLARSHIPS IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATHEMATICS PROGRAM (S-STEM)
Students interested in applying to S-STEM – The S-STEM program funds US institutions of higher learning who in turn implement the scholarship program and select scholars based on the eligibility requirements described in the S-STEM solicitation. S-STEM does not fund students directly. Students who are interested in applying to an S-STEM scholarship should inquiry with their institution’s Office of Financial Aid or Office of Sponsored Programs whether an S-STEM project is available on campus and who is the responsible. The main goal of the S-STEM program is to enable low-income, talented domestic students to pursue successful careers in promising STEM fields. Ultimately, the S-STEM program wants to increase the number of low-income students who graduate and contribute to the American innovation economy with their STEM knowledge. Recognizing that financial aid alone cannot increase retention and graduation in STEM, the program provides awards to Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) to fund scholarships and to adapt, implement, and study effective evidence-based curricular and co-curricular activities that support recruitment, retention, transfer (if appropriate), student success, academic/career pathways, and graduation in STEM.
