Talbots Women's Scholarship Fund
Clothing retailer Talbots has announced the launch of its 11th annual Talbots Women’s Scholarship Fund, a program that awards college scholarships to women wanting to attend college later in life. Sponsored by the Talbots Charitable Foundation, this unique scholarship fund annually awards five $10,000 scholarships and fifty $1,000 scholarships. The fund was created to fill a void in scholarship programs, which typically make awards to traditional college students. Eligible applicants are women currently residing in the United States who earned a high-school diploma or GED at least ten years ago; are currently seeking a degree from an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school; and have at least two full-time semesters or twenty-four credits remaining to complete their undergraduate degree. The deadline for entries is January 2, 2008, or until one thousand eligible applications have been received, whichever happens first.
