Scholarships for Women in Georgia

Georgia Colleges and universities in the United States in general are experiencing a record number of women who are entering college. In fact, for the first time in history, more women than men are attending and graduating from college. While we still have a ways to go to make sure we're making it possible for people of color, people with disabilities, and people with fewer socioeconomic resources to attend college than are currently, we have made great strides to make sure women have the same opportunities as men.

No longer are women attending a Georgia state college only for an “M.R.S.” degree or to be prepared for a “pink collar” job like nursing or teaching. Women are applying to MBA programs, law school and medical school at record rates. More women than ever are entering the STEM (science, technology, engineering and medicine) fields, but that's one area where women are still massively outnumbered by men.

Even with all this great news about women in college, getting a degree in Georgia is a goal that still seems out of reach to a lot of Americans because of the cost. College costs have gone up every year, at a rate which outpaces inflation. Stories in the news about recent grads who are still unemployed in their respective fields, and fears about not being able to repay massive student loans are keeping many students who should be college bound away from higher education, to everyone's detriment.

There are other options for future students than student loans, however. Students who perform extraordinarily well academically in high school, or those who excelled in extra-curricular activities may be eligible for a merit-based scholarship from his or her chosen college or university. Those with particularly dire financial straits might be eligible for a need-based scholarship. Scholarships don't only come from colleges, either, sometimes individuals, not for profit organizations or private businesses may create and maintain scholarship funds, as well.

No matter what kind of financial aid a student might receive, it's important to remember that a grant, Georgia scholarship or loan is an investment in the student's future. It's the student's responsibility to prove that it was a worth investment for the benefactor.
