Grants and scholarships for women
If you have been looking for fast and simple information on how to help fund your schooling, you’ve come to the right place.
This blog is here to assist with grants and scholarships for women. Including working mothers, single mothers, ethnic minorities, military wives and other women. And ages over 30, over 40, or over 50.
The fact is, there are so many grants and scholarships out there nationally, that it is an overwhelming task to hunt them all down and manually apply for the ones you find.
- It takes a lot of time (and I can guess you have a busy lifestyle like me)
- The good scholarships are hard to find
- Filling out all the paper work is tedious
- The easiest grants to find are also the most popular and competitive
So, I wrote this blog to help cut down on the Time, Hunting, Application, and Finding the real “jewels”.
And I hope this helps you too to fund your education and get the career you are aiming for.
And I know exactly how it feels to have too much month at the end of the money.
Paying for the rent, bills, and family stuff seems to suck the bank account dry every month, doesn’t it?
So let’s get down to business~!
I am going to make three suggestions. And I’ve laid out this page so you can actually just go through and complete them one by one. So by the time you finish reading this single page and taking the action steps in order, you will have already made excellent progress towards getting your free financial aid!
Introducing the Grants and scholarships for women, three step plan.
- Automate many of the steps for finding and applying for scholarships and grants (to save time and help locate the hard to find scholarships.)
- Apply to several quick online scholarship draws. (there are a few good sites that have regular draws of $5,000 to $10,000). It’s worth the 30 seconds per site to just to get the chance. It’s similar to a small lottery, but you don’t have to buy a ticket
- Go to your public library and take out an excellent book (read below).
So two of these steps you can do now. And one of them requires you to go to the library.
Alright let’s get into the details.
Apply free for regular draws (sometimes a grant, sometimes a scholarship, or prize).
These usually only take a minute or so to complete. And they are free.
What you do is, enter your name and some basic info. And then you will qualify to win a certain amount of money on the next draw. Usually in the range of $5K to $10K. The odds are probably much better than the lottery. And you don’t have to buy a ticket
These money prizes are usually funded by large schools who want new students. That’s where all this money comes from. So after you put your name and info in, they will probably show you a few of the “sponsor” schools. Then you are done. Easy right?
Here are a few that you can fill out RIGHT NOW.

2) coming soon…
3) coomin soon…
There are new tools that store huge databases of scholarships and grants. And have simple but powerful search and apply functions. They can help you save endless hours of eyeburning search.
But this option actually requires you spend from about $4 to about $47 dollars. So if you value your time, they are an excellent investment. But if you have a $0 budget for your scholarship search, you can skip this step and go to number 3 (below).
There are two main choices, with this type of grant finding tool.
One is to sign up for a low cost trial for a monthly service ( Usually about $5 for the trial). And then at the end of the trial you decide if you want to continue a monthly service.
Personally, what I’d do is get the low cost trial and milk it for all that it’s work for that time period. And then quit before the monthly billing. he he he…
It’s very cost effective that way.
This one is only 1$ for the trial (and there is a money back guarantee if you feel that dollar was wasted)
The second main choice of these types of scholarship and grant tools, is to buy the tool. And own it for a lifetime.
This option can cost around $80 typically. And you can continue to use it semester after semester. Also they usually list a bunch of other types of grants as well (home owner’s grants, business grants etc.). So you can actually continue using it even after you finish your college/university training.
This one is on a limited discount of $47
Alright we are now getting to the last of my suggestions.
So at minimum so far, you should have completed the two free draw applications and possibly have gotten yourself a powerful grant and scholarship search and apply tool.
If you haven’t, then go back and do it now before you slip back to the hustle and bustle of life and forget all about it.
Go to your biggest public library and dig. Or get it on Amazon
The public library is an excellent place to find real scholarship information.
The librarian can help you find many local opportunities, that you would not have found on the internet. The quality of info clearly tops all the hype and garbage filling up the internet these days.
There will likely be a dozen or so books with financial aid information that will suit the needs of women of all ages.
But my favorite book comes out with a new updated edition every year and is a must read.
So write this down.

Well now it’s time for you to get out the door to the library and borrow that book and learn what your local librarian can help you with.
Congratulations! If you finished steps 1 & 2, good for you.
If you only completed step 2, nice job.
If not, go back and do them.
And see you at the library!
