AARP Foundation
Women's Scholarship Program

From 2007 to 2012, AARP Foundation’s Women’s Scholarship Program helped low-income women win back opportunity. The Foundation’s scholarship program funded education, training, and skills upgrades, leading to better employment opportunities and increased financial security for women and their families. 


Due to the need to fund other programs that will be able to assist greater numbers of struggling older people, AARP Foundation  has discontinued funding individual scholarships through the Women’s Scholarship Program in 2013.



What Other scholarship opportunities are available?

While AARP Foundation Women’s Scholarship program is no longer available, there are many grant, scholarship, and fellowship programs administered nationwide.  We recommend visiting:

  • Federal Student Aid - The office of Federal Student Aid provides grants, loans, and work-study funds for college or career school.
  • Scholarships for Women - Free resources to help you discover college scholarships.
  • Jeanette Rankin Women's Scholarship - Awards scholarships annually to low-income women thirty five years of age and older who are in an undergraduate or vocational training program and have a vision of how their education will benefit themselves, their families and their communities.
