Today’s scholarship is sponsored by Emerge Scholarships Inc. This scholarship program is focused on women who are nontraditional students “whose education was delayed or interrupted, individuals with a vision to succeed.” On a side note, this scholarship has a special place for me, because my mother was one of these women–she went back to school and completed both a bachelor’s and master’s degree.
The Emerge Scholarship Program gives preference to women who are studying in the Peach State (also known as Georgia).
While the exact amount of scholarships and award value varies, in 2014, 14 scholarships were awarded. The award amount for 2015 will be between $2,000 and $5,000.
When is the deadline?
The deadline for this award is April 1, 2015 and recipients will be notified in June.
If you have any questions, you can e-mail the scholarship committee: [email protected] or call (404) 477-5808.
Best of luck to all students!
