The Conference of Women Legislators (COWL), a bipartisan, bicameral, nonprofit organization of women legislators in the Illinois General Assembly, announces the 2020-2021 Annual Scholarship Awards Program.
COWL created the scholarship program as part of its mission to promote economic independence, community service and leadership development.
Up to ten scholarships of $2,500 each will be awarded. These college scholarships are aimed at helping women who are earning their college degrees, in some cases, later in life.
Scholarship applicants are required to enroll in an Illinois accredited college or university for a minimum of six credit hours to qualify, making the scholarships available to part-time and online students.
Applications are accepted at www.cowlil.com until May 1, 2020. Awardees will be notified by June 1, 2020.
