About the Women On Par® Scholarship
The Women On Par® Scholarship was established in 2007 to provide financial assistance to “non-traditional” female students.  This scholarship is intended for women, age 30 and older, who are attending a college or university for the first time or returning to school after an absence to complete their technical/vocational, Associates or Bachelors degree.  The scholarship is designed to help these women get “on par,” or get an equal footing with their peers, friends and other women who have had a chance to complete their college education.

One (1) $2,000 Women On Par® scholarship and one (1) $1,000 Women On Par® scholarship will be awarded in 2018.
