International Girls Day is specially celebrated this November 14th, and it´s the perfect time to encourage all kinds of girls’ interests, and education is one of them. That´s why Scholaroo – a scholarship research tool- has been gathering scholarships all over the country, especially for women and their learning development.
Given the increase in college tuition and fees by at least 20% in the last 10 years, women have to evaluate their options when it comes to scholarships and loans. To contribute to women’s education, Scholaroo has centralized 48 scholarships focused on women. More than 400 scholarships will be offered in total, ranging from $500 to $20,000.
