Masters Degree Scholarships for Women

Finding the money to afford to go to college can be a difficult task, especially when pursuing a master’s degree. For women with these educational goals, going to school can result in graduating with a staggering amount of debt. Fortunately, scholarships exist that are designed to help these women succeed in their goals and advance their education without having to worry as much about the cost.

Scholarships for Women Majoring in a Traditionally Male-Dominated Field

Many scholarships exist to assist in fulfilling the educational goals of women who intend to go into a certain field, typically a traditionally male-dominated one. These scholarships aim to encourage women to go into careers that are not traditionally held by women and achieve advancement for women in these fields.

      I finished my Bachelors Degree two years ago at age 56 and would like to pursue my Masters Degree. I will be 61 when I finish. My education was delayed because I became a widow and needed to raise my daughter. Because there wasn’t and still aren’t grants/scholarships available for widows, I am in debt from taking out loans for undergraduate. Probably the reason there isn’t money available is that most women don’t lose their husbands in their 40’s. I’m in search for grants or scholarships for a non-minority woman for a Masters degree in Special Education. Thank you.

    I’m a 50 year old unemployed, African American divorced mother of one teenage son. I’m also a breast cancer survivor (10 years and counting). I was diagnosed at the age of 40, I had an aggressive form of breast cancer and had to undergo chemotherapy, multiple surgeries (including a lumpectomy), and radiation treatment. During that time my then husband served me with divorce papers. After losing my job, my son and I moved in with my mother (in her elderly one bedroom apt).

    At age 43 I decided to go back to school to get my bachelors degree. In 2010 I graduated from Cambridge College with my BA in multidisciplinary studies, while caring for my son and my mother(she passed away in Feb. 2010). After losing 3 family members in within 6 months of each other, I went back to school in 2011 to pursue my masters degree. I’m currently in my masters program at Lesley University; Community Arts and Education, with a major in theatre studies, I will be graduating in May of 2014.

    Although I’m currently unemployed, I’m using this time to do my internship this summer. In 2 years, my son will be graduating from high school and attending college.

    At that point I will have to begin paying for all my student loans from college, and I cannot afford to pay for all these loans on my own. I’m looking for foundation/organization that will help someone like me.

    If you have any information on scholarships/grants for my particular situation, could you please let me know. Thank you and God Bless.

    Do you know of scholarships for former long-term family care givers?

    I was one and I seek an opportunity to combine my life experience and skills in a full-time role. I would like to acquire a graduate degree.

    Both of my parents are now deceased, Both had complex medical histories. My father was a decorated WWII Ex-POW and my mother was a 2X cancer survivor with a very rare case non-inherited dementia. The journey is worthy of a book and/or the development of a special fund.

    To fellow posters:

    The writer has done a tremendous job at providing readers (and scholarship seekers) with pertinent information to take the next step: dig deeper. I am perplexed at the numerous requests for additional information when the author has already completed 90% of the work for you. If this sort of behavior is any indication of one’s ability to take initiative in their career, some of you want may want to consider an alternate avenue.Since we are all on here to start or continue our education, in order to be successful, it requires proactiveness, self-reliance, and more importantly, self-awareness. Therefore, when detailed information has already been provided, it is now up to the reader (you all) to USE that information accordingly and to our advantage – instead of expecting the author to do the work for you. As I’m sure most of you have found out, life doesn’t work that way. Good luck.

    And thank you to the author for researching/collecting valuable information …strictly and solely for the benefit of women.

      I know this is late, but well said. I was thinking the same thing when I came across this wonderful resource. People should take the information and get busy.

        It is really perplexing that in every arena there are always those people who’s only goal seems to be to police the actions of others. This website isn’t design for people like you either. Women of all calibers need to be encouraged and motivated. As a 25 year professor of human behavior, I understand when a person becomes a self-appointed critic or educator of people who don’t behave within their designed constructs is really a revelation of the person’s own inadequacies. The fact is, personal inquiries for information beyond what is presented on this site aren’t ignored. There are entities and people who have empathy for those who are hurting and/or confused.
