*In 2017, the Foundation is offering five Education Support Awards of up to
$5000 each to assist low-income women with children who are pursuing
education or training.* Awardees will be selected based on 1) financial
need; 2) personal circumstance; 3) educational path; 4) vocational or
occupational goals, and 5) service or activist or civic goals.

Education Support Awards are disbursed in two separate installments over
the academic year (one each semester) and may be used for direct school
expenses or for living expenses while you are enrolled in an educational
program. Awardees will be notified by phone or email in late October.
Shortly after recipient notification, the list of awardees will be posted
on this site. (Please note: The Foundation will contact awardees only. We
