The Jeannette Rankin Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for, and awarding scholarships to, low-income women, ages 35 and older. Each scholarship recipient has a vision of how a college education will benefit herself, her family, and her community. Most recipients are in truly meager financial circumstances and may have other hardships or disabilities.
From one $500 scholarship in 1978 to 80 scholarships in 2007, JRF has awarded over $1 million in financial aid to more than 500 US women.
