Act Fast – Woman’s Scholarship

Educate a woman, and countless generations to come will benefit from the investment

That’s Linda Lael Miller’s philosophy and what inspired her to launch her Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women a few years ago. Now, each year, Linda encourages women who want to improve their lot in life through education to apply for scholarships that she personally finances.

Linda’s scholarships are awarded annually to women who are 25 years or older, non-traditional students who have a difficult time finding scholarships for which they qualify. As in previous years, the scholarship funds may be used not only for tuition and books, but also for childcare, transportation and other expenses not covered by traditional scholarships.
