You may have known that the Center for Women & Gender is devoted to assisting students at Utah State University succeed in their education, but did you know that we offer many different forms of financial aid? 


The CWG currently offers 27 different scholarships for re-entry women, single parent students, minorities, and more.

For example, there is the Carol Wennergren Clay Endowment which is awarded to undergraduate re-entry women, undergraduate senior women, or graduate re-entry women who need financial assistance.

Any USU student who qualifies for the scholarship’s requirements is welcomed and encouraged to apply.

Applications for the 2017-2018 school year are open now, and are due by April 7th, 2017.

Are you interested in doing research on a critical issue related to gender? Such projects could be focused on females, males, non-binary gender identities, the LGBTQ community, or any combination of the above.

During the 2015-2016 school year, five research proposals were funded through the Gender Grant Program. These projects received funding ranging from $2,600 to $13,000.

The due date for research proposals is March 17th, 2017 at 5:00 pm.

Helping Hands Program

It is very difficult, and sometimes nearly impossible, for single mothers to attend school. In Cache County, a single mother with three children spends an average of $890 a month on housing, $750 a month on food, and $1,500 a month on childcare. So on top of that, spending around $3,500 for tuition, fees, and books at Utah State University poses quite a challenge. These and other costs can stop a woman's education. You can help women finish their schooling today by contributing to Helping Hands.

There are three suggested levels of donations you can make to Helping Hands:

-Level 1: $25 (two days of food, two days of housing, or one day of USU tuition)

-Level 2: $150 (six days of food, six days of housing, or three days of USU tuition)

-Level 3: $365 (two weeks of food, two weeks of housing, or ten days of USU tuition) 

However, any donation is accepted and genuinely appreciated. Your contributions allow us to provide Helping Hands to women students in dire need of food, shelter, clothing, and more.
