Grants for Women

Women own 40% of businesses in the United States and account for BILLIONS of dollars in sales. Women control 80% of the purchases in the United States, make up more than half of the population--and slowly but surely, women have changed and continue to change society today.

Grant programs for female athletes, scholars, businesswomen--and more--continue to help women to advance through society. Take a careful look at the grants and scholarships listed here, and be sure to apply for any that relate to your life.

Look also at the additional grant listings on The Grant News Network. You have a FREE trial membership to GNN, and there youll find the "Woman to Woman" column for female business owners (and those who want to start businesses), written by a successful female entrepreneur and grant recipient. Be sure to explore ALL of your resources to get ahead!
