Community Friends of Women's Studies awards competitive scholarships to women's studies majors who have entered IPFW for the first time, who have newly declared women's studies as their major, or who are in the early stages of the coursework in women's studies. The scholarship amount is $200 for one semester with the possibility of renewal over the course of the student's education at IPFW up to $1600.
To be eligible:
To apply, students must submit the scholarship application form, along with 500-700 word essay on why they chose women's studies as a major. Application forms are available through the Women's Studies Program office - LA 35 F or online. Applications are accepted twice a year and are generally due by the 11th week of fall and spring semester.
The $200 scholarship will be renewed each semester provided students maintain an overall 3.5 GPA, enroll for a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester, and continue to make progress on their women's studies major as determined by the Director of the Women's Studies Program.
