Jeannette Rankin Women’s Scholarship Fund (JRWSF) provides scholarships and support for low-income women 35 and older to build better lives through college completion. This year, JRWSF is providing $2000 scholarships to100 women across the United States. These awards may be renewed for up to 5 years, so a recipient could receive a total of $10,000. JRWSF scholars demonstrate courage, determination, and persistence as they succeed in conquering poverty. JRWSF scholarships make education accessible to an often overlooked group, giving hope to women juggling school, work and family responsibilities. Of JRWSF alumnae responding to our annual survey, 84% have graduated or were still enrolled in school. They are making great changes for themselves, their families and their communities.
