Charlotte Newcombe Scholarship Application

The goal of the Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation is to support women 25 and older in the completion of a Bachelor’s Degree or Post-Baccalaureate Certificate so they can advance their careers after graduation. Since 1981 over 39,500 Newcombe Scholarships have been awarded to students at more than 100 colleges and universities.

Historically, the Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation has provided financial assistance for mature women students whose pursuit of a bachelor’s degree is complicated by personal responsibilities or challenging circumstances requiring significant financial and/or time commitments, and who need scholarship aid to complete their degree in timely fashion.

These scholarships reduce dependence on loans and recognize the challenges faced by mature women who seek higher education while juggling family and work commitments. 

Recipients will be selected from submitted responses to the following question: What makes you the best candidate for the Charlotte W. Newcombe Scholarship? Please include your personal, educational, and career goals as well as circumstances that have delayed or interrupted the completion of your coursework.
