McLane Scholarship Program
In June of 2013, GSUSA announced the five-year Chuck McLane Scholarship available for Girl
Scout Gold Award recipients who completed a STEM Take Action project
and who will attend an accredited four-year college or university as a
freshman beginning in fall 2017 to pursue and complete studies in a
STEM-related field. The scholarship program awards a $10,000 college
scholarship to two recipients each year, up to a total of ten
recipients by 2017.
It's widely known that there are far fewer women than men in
computer science, but how can we help reverse that
trend? ComputerScience.org is part of a new initiative to form the
next generation of engineers, developers, and network administrators,
and they are striving to get more women involved.
Because college can be so expensive for women pursuing engineering
degrees, we've collected 20
scholarships available only to women earning computer science
degrees. It's part of a larger resource ComputerScience.org has
created to bring more women into STEM fields.

Did you know that the average female college graduate from the class
of 2008 has only paid off 33% of her student loans compared to her
male classmates at 44%? It doesn't have to be like this. There are
options for women in higher education to minimize their loan debt. We
want to close this gap by connecting more female students with
scholarships and funding which is why our team created a guide to financial aid for women.
This guide is a free resource that offers scholarships and financial
aid information for all women pursuing higher education and includes
specific content for students in traditionally underrepresented fields
like STEM and finance as well as often underserved groups like single
mothers and veterans.
We are ready to donate our earnings to a good cause of scholarship
