New Scholarship Opportunity from the Mass. Commission on the Status of Women

MCSW Scholarship ProgramThe State Women’s Commission announced today the launch of a new scholarship program that aims to support emerging leaders of the Commonwealth to continue their education journey to leadership and economic empowerment.

Designed to support woman-identifying students already enrolled in a Massachusetts Public Higher Education Institution, scholarships will be available to help an individual complete their degree.

“This new program seeks to provide funding for women students, who may not be able to access scholarship and grant funding typically available to more traditional students, to continue their education and path to economic success,” said MCSW State Commissioner Denella Clark, Chair of the new Scholarship Committee, stated in the MCSW press release.

The MCSW will award 5 individuals with a scholarship of $5000 each for the 2024-2025 academic year. Applicants must complete the online application and submit supporting materials no later than March 1, 2024. Applicants must currently be enrolled in an accredited degree or certificate program in Massachusetts and have completed at least one year towards their degree. The funds from this scholarship will go towards tuition, fees, books and related supplies or equipment for study.  All funds awarded are provided by the MCSW Trust Fund.
