Deadline is Approaching for the AARP Foundation Women’s Scholarship!
The AARP Foundation Women’s Scholarship Program is for nontraditional students – women who are 40+ years old, and who are seeking new educational opportunities, job skills, and training.
The deadline to apply for this scholarship is March 31, 2010. It is available for full or part-time students.
The AARP Foundation Women’s Scholarship may be used at public or private schools, community colleges, technical schools, and universities, for tuition, fees, and books. This scholarship is not for graduate degree programs. Rather, it is for women seeking out training and certificate programs. Many women are returning to the workforce after an extended absence, or are underemployed and need more skills and experience to further their careers.
