Conference of Women Legislators

Scholarship Opportunity

The Conference of Women Legislators (COWL) has established a scholarship fund to assist mature women (age 25 and older) who wish to continue their undergraduate education. The goal of the scholarship is to focus on deserving, qualified women whose
educations were interrupted due to family concerns and economic problems. Particular consideration will emphasize women who have shown leadership promise through community service. The one year undergraduate scholarship will cover tuition, books and
fees up to $2500 per year, including summer school. Applicants for the scholarship must meet certain requirements to be eligible. In addition to being a woman 25 years of age or older, she must be an Illinois resident and plan to attend an accredited on-campus school in Illinois for at least six semester hours (online college are not eligible).

Application materials must be postmarked no later than March 31, 2014 to be considered and all applicants will be notified by April 30, 2014. COWL Scholarship Program for 2014-2015 Academic Year
