The Boston University Women’s Guild Scholarships

women's guild



 The Boston University Women’s Guild invites all BU women graduate students 30 years of age and over to apply for a Boston University Women’s Guild scholarship. As a long-standing women’s organization on campus, established in 1956, the Guild is pleased to honor the talented women students in our midst each year.

 The Boston University Women’s Guild scholarships provide both aid and encouragement to women 30 and over enrolled in University graduate programs. Guild scholarships, unlike many others, do not require U.S. citizenship or (recognizing that women often have other responsibilities) full-time enrollment. Awards consist of the endowed Katherine Connor McLaughlin Memorial Scholarship and others funded year-by-year by donations from Guild members and friends. In the past, Guild scholarships have averaged about $1,000 per award.

 Winners have ranged in age from 30 to 58 and have come from all BU schools offering graduate programs and from many countries. Extraordinary expenses that awards have helped pay include child care, support of parents and parents-in-law, and treatment of serious chronic conditions, as well as tuition, production costs for thesis films, and travel and other research needs.
