The Womenâ€™s Center at Kent State University, established in 1996, has been a motivating force toward the advancement of women in higher education. An integral part of our effort is to empower women with financial assistance in obtaining a college degree.
The Womenâ€™s Center endowed scholarship fund, established in 2003, enables the center to provide two Kent State University female students with a $500 scholarship. To date, 19 women have received scholarships.
Applications will be accepted for the 2013-14 school year until Monday, February 11, 2013. Scholarship recipients will be invited to a Womenâ€™s Center Event to receive the award. Attendance is required. Recipients of the awards are expected to maintain contact with the Womenâ€™s Center for the duration of that academic year and will be student members of the Womenâ€™s Center Advisory Board.
