Women-specific scholarships originated decades ago as a way to encourage more women to consider pursuing college-level education. At that time, female students were a minority. While the ranks of women in college have greatly expanded over the years, there is a continued effort to increase the diversity of the student population, create additional opportunities, and encourage entry into non-traditional fields of study, such as Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
The need for additional aid is growing. From 1996 to 2012, college enrollment for Hispanic students has increased by 240%.

Extending and making known more forms of aid for traditionally underrepresented groups will open doors leading to better lives.
