The LCU Fund for Women’s Education addresses the role of housing as a gateway to opportunity for women by clearing the path for in-need scholars to complete college by helping them pay their rent.
HOW OUR GRANTS WORK
The LCU Fund for Women’s Education does not make grants to individual scholars. Rather, funds are awarded to partner schools who in turn disburse grants to selected scholars based on the LCU Fund’s eligibility criteria. Grants are made to select accredited institutions to provide housing support to high performing, low-income women scholars so that they may focus on their studies and complete their degree.
The LCU Fund awards grants to selected colleges or universities, public or private, that provide undergraduate, graduate and / or professional programs within the five boroughs of New York City. LCU Funds are used solely to help pay the rent of women scholars in need who are preparing for careers in the arts, education, social work, public administration, religious leadership, criminal justice or health care.
