The Emerge Scholarships Inc. (Emerge) scholarship program (www.emergescholarships.org) has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships since its founding 2001. While each year hundreds of applicants apply for the scholarships, we are only able to recognize a small number of winners. The selection committee is focused on identifying special women who are non-traditional students whose education was delayed or interrupted, individuals with a vision to succeed regardless of any obstacles that life has put in their way. We are especially interested in recognizing women who give back to their communities and whose goals and desires for education align with their passions. Additionally, preference is given to women who are pursuing their educational endeavors in the state of Georgia. This may include women who are returning to school after a hiatus, changing careers, seeking advancement in their career or work life, and stay-at-home moms entering the work place and in need of additional education/training. This scholarship is not intended for recent high school graduates or women who are eligible for or who have already received other significant financial aid. Applicants must be at least 25 years of age. U.S. citizen or permanent resident. must be accepted into a program of study at an educational institution, as evidenced by a proof of acceptance either an acceptance letter OR a current transcript.
