"When you're able to view painful lessons as blessings, they become blessons."- Founder, Blessons Scholarships for Women
Our Mission: Blessons provides free mentorship and educational workshops for all women, in addition to scholarships to disadvantaged, low-income women who are 25 years or older and who have had their higher education interrupted due to challenging life lessons including; cancer, mental illness, physical or emotional abuse, or who are first generation immigrants.
Blessons mission is meant for those women who have a vision to succeed in spite of obstacles.The most important aspect for many women is their family. This is especially true if they happen to be older women. For ladies who have taken time to raise a family either before they entered college or sometime after they did, returning to school to better themselves and their job prospects can become expensive in a hurry. One of the main reasons why many non-traditional female students cannot finish is due to experiencing challenging life lessons including financial hardship. Scholarships for returning students are in need and not many exist.

Free Educational & Wellness Workshops
From personal branding tips to mock interviews to learning self-defense tactics!
Blessons is dedicated to empower women of all ages through monthly personal and professional development workshop, provided for FREE. We value the importance of building self-confidence in a woman and providing them with resources in order to guide them in discovering and fulfilling true potential through several diverse events within our Community Engagement Program.
We believe that education sets in motion a virtuous spiral: girls and women gain greater knowledge, skills, self-confidence and capabilities, improving their own life prospects—and, in turn, an educated woman provides better nutrition, health care, and education for her family. Education enables a woman to take greater control of her life and gain inclusion in decision-making processes, which unleashes her potential to contribute socially and economically to her family’s and community’s well being.
