THE WOMEN & WORK

Scholarship

Women & Work is thrilled to help propel women forward into their God-given calling by awarding our second annual scholarship! The Women & Work Scholarship assists women financially as they further their education in the field of study God has called them to.

We know student life is hard work—being present for class, studying, completing assignments, and meeting deadlines—especially when that includes balancing a job or family life. 

Finishing well as a graduate requires energy, determination, and even funds. Women & Work is grateful to serve women by lessening that burden by making the financial load lighter as women prepare for their work by continuing their education.

Our Heartbeat

The heartbeat of our team is to:

  • Choose a deserving recipient
  • Get to know this woman by hearing how God has led her and called her to the work she’s pursuing for His glory
  • Have our Women & Work community also meet her digitally and champion her
  • Help her network with other Christian women in her vocational field
  • Follow her successes and pray her on through each semester until she graduates

How can you join us? 

We need your help to make the scholarship happen:

  • Continue to give to our scholarship fund linked at the bottom of this page. 
  • Spread the word that our scholarship exists so that many women will apply
  • Pray for wisdom for our scholarship selection committee to discern who our first recipient should be
  • Pray for the recipient herself to be strengthened in her walk with the Lord and that she will fulfill her calling

Dates & Details

The Women & Work Scholarship is $1,500. 

The scholarship application is open through April and will close on May 10, 2024. A recipient will be awarded in June 2024. The Women & Work Scholarship will be awarded to a woman who plans to attend a traditional 4-year college or university, a 2-year community college, a graduate-level institution, or a trade school.

They may pursue a degree in both non-ministry or ministry-related fields. 

Applicants may be traditional students with at least one year of college already completed or women returning to school in a different season of life. 

The recipient will be awarded the scholarship just once.
