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.
