Community is essential to personal growth and in fostering women as agents of change.
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.
Blessons Scholarships for Women Program
Regardless of background and study interests, there are Blessons Scholarships available for women trying to re-enter or advance themselves in the job market by obtaining a higher education or new skill. We support women who want to attain a higher education and training in order to improve their economic status.
Funded by donations with an intent to provide scholarships to women 25 years of age or older who are interested in finishing their education and advancing their career, Blessons Scholarships for Women Awards can help them fund their higher education. Life gets in the way for a number of women. In addition to challenging life lessons such as; cancer, mental illness, physical or emotional abuse, sex trafficking, discrimination and isolation due to sexual orientation, or being a first-generation female immigrant, they may also have kids, get involved with careers and simply push school off until later. When the time comes to finally go back and get a degree, certificate, license and/or pursue a new skill or trade to get back into the workforce, it can be cost-prohibitive to do so.
Blessons Scholarships for Women applications are accepted until Nov 1st, 2019 for 2020 Scholarship Awards. We welcome accredited Trade, Vocational & Tech School/Program female students to apply.
