The scholarship is open to low-income women 40+. Priority is given to women who are in one of three categories:

1) women raising the children of another family member,

2) those in dead end jobs and

3) those who have been out of the paid workforce for an extended period.

The scholarships, which range from $500 to $5,000, are to be used for tuition and books and are paid directly to the educational institution. Nearly 300 hundred women were helped through the program in the first round and about 250 women received scholarships in round two.

The program is funded by AARP with generous support from the AARP Foundation Women’s Leadership Circle.
