The American Association for University Women recently reported that 53% of women have high student loan debt just one year after graduation compared to 39% of men. Many women also face the added difficulties of trying to go to college for the first time later in life, returning to school long after gaps of time, and attaining a degree while being a single parent.

It is important to empower women at every stage of their lives. To that end, here are links to scholarships by various groups, including those focusing on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
