Talbots Supports Women Returning to School

Once again, it gives me great pleasure to help the Talbots Scholarship Foundation get word out about the 2011 Nancy Talbot Scholarship Award. Targeted to women returning to full or part time undergraduate studies, this program is designed to empower women to “enrich themselves through learning and achieve a college education later in life.”

The Talbot’s Women’s Scholarship Fund will award $180,000 in college scholarships for the 2011 academic year, including ten $15,000 scholarships and one $30,000 scholarship. Only applicants seeking a bachelor’s degree are eligible to receive an award.

Finalists will be selected based on a number of criteria including academic record; demonstrated leadership and participation in community activities; honors; work experience; financial need; and a statement of educational and career goals.

To qualify, applicants must be

• women currently residing in the US or Canada;
• women who earned a high school diploma or their GED on or before September 2001;
• enrolled or planning to enroll in a full or part time undergraduate course of study at an accredited college or university in the US or Canada;
• attending the full 2011-12 academic year and receiving a degree no earlier than May 2012; and
• at least two semesters short of graduation as of the beginning of the 2011 fall academic term.

All applications must be submitted electronically by January 3, 2011, and only the first 5,000 eligible applications will be considered. Registration and more information may be found on the Scholarship America website.
