Let's get to work ladies! There's money to be made! On another note, I would never look this happy to be filling out scholarship applications...

Who wouldn’t look this happy filling out an application for some free money!

There truly is a scholarship for pretty much anything you can think of.

From hobbies as specific as hula dancing to something as broad as simply being a woman, there is free money out there for you. And if there is money out there, I’m going to tell you about it!


Below, I’ve listed as many scholarships for women as I could find. If available, I’ve included a little about the eligibility requirements, a link to the application, and the application deadline.

As always, this is just a sample of scholarships available for women. To find more, conduct your own scholarship search. This could be as simple as typing “scholarships for women” into Google.

Go get ‘em, ladies!
