ROBINSON -- State Representative Chris Miller (R-Oakland), announced that the Conference of Women Legislators (COWL), a bipartisan, bicameral, nonprofit organization of women legislators in the Illinois General Assembly, has announced the 2019-2020 Scholarship Award Program. The scholarship program endeavors to assist Illinois women, 25 years or older, who are seeking to earn undergraduate college degrees. Each scholarship is $2,500.
“These scholarships are targeted at helping women, 25 years of age or older, who may have had their education interrupted so they could raise a family or maybe never had a chance to go to college until later in life,” said Rep. Chris Miller. “I encourage women who think they may qualify for these scholarships to apply.”
Scholarship applicants are required to enroll in an Illinois accredited college or university for a minimum of six credit hours to qualify, making the scholarships available to part-time and online students. Applications must be postmarked or emailed by April 30, 2019. Awardees will be notified by May 31, 2019. All scholarship materials may be downloaded at www.cowlil.com.
