Today, it isn’t uncommon to see women attending colleges and universities right alongside men, but that wasn’t always the case. There’s been great progress in bridging the gap between equal rights of men and women — but we still have a ways to go. Women typically still earn less and are less-frequently found in leadership positions than men. Today’s woman is pursuing a career — and often taking care of her family at the same time. Several organizations and colleges offer scholarships for women to continue their education and go after their goals. Search our list of scholarships for women, and show the world just what a girl can do!
