The Women's Studies Program offers a variety of undergraduate scholarships and one graduate scholarship of different amounts. In order for a student to receive a scholarship from the Women's Studies Program, the student is required to complete a scholarship application.
Each scholarship has a check list of minimum qualifications that student's should follow when completing the application. Each scholarship will list the specific GPA requirement, written essay structure, two letters of recommendation and a brief written summary of extracurricular activities such as honors, achievements, memberships, scholastic awards and professional accomplishments. These written materials are to accompany the application form.
