College Scholarships Foundation Women's Scholarship
We're giving away $500 this year to a female college student this year.
The roles of women as family caretakers and members of the workforce have started to even out. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women, when compared to men, spend more time on caring for children/household members and housework, while also working nearly as many hours at their jobs - about a one hour difference.
Some women find getting an education to be a difficult undertaking, especially when childbearing enters the picture. Although college enrollment of women is higher than men, the financial burden may be harder to deal with during school and after a degree is completed.
We help deserving female students with their education expenses so they can focus on what's most important - caring for the current and future generations.
Candidates for our women's scholarship must meet the following criteria
- U.S. citizen;
- 3.0 GPA;
- Currently attending full time study in post-secondary education (undergraduate or graduate); and

There is a 300 word limit to our essay questions. Generally though, short and interesting is preferred over verbose. Use any of these questions as the basis for your scholarship essay:
- How have your education plans affected your plans of starting a family?
- What trends do you foresee occuring for women in the workforce?
- Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
