We believe Education is a basic human right, and it is central to unlocking human capabilities. It has been known to have tremendous instrumental value.
Education raises human value, productivity, incomes, economic growth and employability. But its benefits go far beyond these monetary gains: education also makes people healthier and gives them more control over their lives.
And it generates trust, boosts social understanding, and creates institutions that promote inclusion and shared prosperity. When mailed in Washington State, local and national awards are listed, Online resources for most areas are listed. Link: www.educatingouryouth.org

Scholarships for Women – The economy gets tough on occasion. When it does, many adults choose to return to school alongside graduating high school seniors. Both types of students enter higher education for one purpose: to better their chances of getting a job that will help them through the hard times, or to get their dream job they have wanted to do for most of their lives. In some cases, they may not have had the opportunity to do so, having instead taken time out to marry and raise a family or enter another type of occupation in order to make ends meet. The reasons for wanting to go to college are as numerous as the people who make the choice to do so.
A major part of those students are female. Women represent over half the undergraduate class for Caucasians, and 62 percent of African American undergrads, but any ethnicity has the same slant between women and men. Some of these young ladies are fresh-faced eighteen-year-olds straight from high school with ambition to change the world, but others may have had to put their lives on hold in order to raise a child. Some women may be furthering their education at the graduate level too. Because women are coming to college in such great numbers, the need to pay for that education becomes a requirement that can make or break the decision to stay. Link: www.scholarshipsforwomen.net/
