2020 Scholarship Opportunity

Shattering Glass Ceilings Scholarship will again be awarding scholarships for the 2020-2021 academic year to women who are first-generation college students. All applicants must be currently enrolled at an institution and have a bill showing that they are paying for at least part of their tuition out-of-pocket or through loans.

The institution must be based in the U.S., be a non-profit, and may include a college, university, community college, or technical college.

We are happy to announce that we are increasing the number of scholarships this year and plan to award twenty, $1000 scholarships.
