AffordableColleges.com Scholarship Guide for Women
Today, women make up nearly half of the workforce in America, and the number of women earning degrees in higher education has surpassed that of men in recent decades. In 2013, women aged 25-34 were 21% more likely to earn an undergraduate degree and 48% percent more likely to complete graduate school than their male counterparts, according to a report from the White House Council of Economic Advisors. Various types of scholarships are offered specifically for women. Some award academic performance and leadership skills, while others encourage women to pursue graduate studies or careers that are traditionally male-dominated, such as business, science, engineering, and technology. AffordableColleges.com, recently added a scholarship guide for women to help students identify these opportunities.
