College Scholarships and Resources for Women
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, since 1980, women have made up the majority of students at post-secondary, degree-granting institutions. Yet, they are still under-represented in a number of fields, most notably in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines, and continue to earn about $0.77 of every dollar brought in by their male counterparts.
In an effort to help women close this gap and achieve success both in college and their careers, Experts at BestColleges.com have curated a collection of scholarships and resources for women.
