There are actually many financially restricted women who were unable to enroll in college or any vocational courses after they graduated in high school because of high cost of education. But now these women who graduated ten years ago or more (on or before September 1998) can finally have a chance to study in college or take a vocational or technical program because the Talbots Charitable Foundation has a special scholarship program for them.
The Talbots Women’s Scholarship Fund, will give away award a total of $100,000 in scholarships to women who are determined to finally get their college degree. Five women scholars will each receive $10,000 scholarships to pursue a 4 year degree program while 50 $1,000 scholarships will be given to women seeking vocation courses.
Even women who have GED can apply for this scholarship as long as they earned it at least ten year ago. To get a copy of the application form, please click here. Deadline for submission is on January 2, 2008 or until the 1,000 applications has been achieved.
