As a Star Scholar Sponsor, you have the opportunity to create meaningful change in a woman’s life, providing her with financial support and encouragement as she works towards earning her degree.  Our Scholars are determined and driven and have a deep desire to build a better future for themselves and their families. They are prepared to work towards a college degree, sparking positive change for themselves, their families, and their communities for generations to come.

A Star Scholarship eliminates a financial barrier for a woman seeking the higher education she needs to attain a living wage career. Star Scholars receive up to $5,000 per academic year and up to $20,000 over her undergraduate college career at the approved Washington college or university of her choice.
