About the Scholarship

About the Scholarship

The “Women on Par®” Scholarship Program, provided by the EWGA Foundation, was established in 2007 to provide financial assistance to “non-traditional” female students. These scholarships are 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, Associate or Bachelors degree. The scholarships are 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.

Since inception, the scholarship program has helped more than half a dozen women realize their dreams. In 2017, two (2) scholarships will be awarded: One (1) $1,000 Women On Par® scholarship and one (1) $500 Women On Par® scholarship.
