The Institute for Women's Studies and Services offers information for students on a variety of local and national scholarships. Current applications for many scholarships are available in our office at 1059 9th Street Park in one of the historic houses near the Mercantile. Since it is impossible to provide every application, the address, phone number and a link to the organization's website is provided. If there is no website, call or write the organization directly.

We have information about more than 170 local and national community-based scholarships. You can view the list on this site or stop by our office to pick up a copy of the list. We also offer workshops on how to apply for scholarships and are available to provide individual assistance with applications and essays. In addition, we distribute applications for several local scholarships.

IWSS Scholarships

The Institute for Women's Studies and Services also offers four scholarships of its own: the Meredith Wetzel Scholarship, the Pamela McIntyre Marcum Scholarship, Nueva Esperanza, and the Activist Scholarship. We also help sponsor the Nueva Esperanza Scholarship with the CAMP Program. These awards are given out each academic year at the Outstanding Women's Awards Banquet. Online applications are currently closed for the 2016-2017 academic year and will open again in Spring 2017. Find out more by clicking the IWSS Scholarships tab on the left.
