Scholarships to help women attend college

The Illinois Conference of Women Legislators (COWL) is accepting scholarship applications to help eligible women attend college. 

COWL endeavors to support women of all income levels who have not had the opportunity to begin or complete higher education. Women 25 years of age or older, who are Illinois residents, with plans to attend an accredited school in Illinois are encouraged to apply.

The one-year undergraduate scholarship will cover tuition, books and fees up to $2,500 for the 2020-2021 academic year (Fall 2020 through Summer 2021). Up to ten scholarships will be awarded.

The online application must be submitted by midnight on Friday, May 1, 2020 to be considered. COWL will send notification to all scholarship awardees by Monday, June 1, 2020.

Please email COWL for more information.
