If you are a Republican woman pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies, you can apply for the National Pathfinder Scholarship through the National Federation of Republican Women. The NFRW is dedicated to helping young Republicans succeed, and provides a number of scholarship opportunities which are well worth looking into. Each year, three National Pathfinder Scholarships are given out, each worth $2,500.
You can apply for this scholarship if you are an undergraduate sophomore, junior or senior, or if you are a graduate student. High school students and freshmen are not eligible to apply, and there are no renewals, so you can only win once. In order to apply, fill out the Pathfinder application on the NFRW’s website, and send it in along with a transcript, three letters of recommendation, and a one page typed essay where you explain your career goals and why you should win the Pathfinder Scholarship. Make sure to obtain a State Federation President Certification. Apply by June 1, and while you are at it, be sure to look at the other scholarships on the NFRW site to see what else you might qualify to win.
