AARP Women's Scholarship Program
AARP Foundation created the Women's Scholarship Program in August 2007 to help older women overcome financial and employment barriers by allowing them to participate in education and training opportunities they otherwise could not afford. In 2010, more than $450,000 in educational scholarships was awarded to 200 women nationwide.
Priority is given to women in three categories:
-Those who are raising the children of another family member
-Those in low-paying jobs with no career opportunities and who are lacking a retirement benefit and/or health insurance
-Those who have been out of the work force for more than five years
