Date: March 2nd 2011


AARP Women's Scholarship Program is about creating chances, fostering opportunities and, ultimately, changing lives. Recipients of these scholarships are diverse and inspirational: A widow finding hope and opportunity through education; a recovering addict achieving her dream of graduating from college; a grandmother raising grandchildren with the hope of achieving a more secure future for her family.

Priority is given to women in three categories:

Those who are raising the children of another family member
Those in low-paying jobs with no career opportunities and who are lacking a retirement benefit and/or health insurance
* Those who have been out of the workforce for more than five years

The scholarship program is made possible by AARP Foundation with generous support from the Wal-Mart Foundation and AARP.

Dead line March 31th
