INDIANAPOLIS— The Indiana Political Organization for Women’s Education and Representation (POWER) Caucus Scholarship is now accepting applications. $750 is awarded biennially to as many women as possible with the intention of helping Hoosier women who took a non-traditional education route and returned to an Indiana school to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree at age 25 or older. The scholarship is typically awarded to a woman who demonstrates passion for giving back to those around her and the betterment of her community.
“The women of the Indiana General Assembly raise funds to offer the POWER scholarships to women in our districts because we know that education is a game changer,” State Rep. Sue Errington said. “It’s never too late for a woman to go back to school. If the scholarship will help make that happen for you, I encourage you to apply.”
Applications are due by Nov. 15 of this calendar year. The application form is live now. No late submissions will be accepted. If you have any questions please reach out to Christian.Garrett@iga.in.gov or 317-234-9041.
