MCSW Scholarship Program

In honor of our 25th Anniversary the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women is proud to launch the MCSW scholarship program, funded by the MCSW Trust Fund. This program will aim to support emerging leaders of the Commonwealth in continuing their education journey to leadership and economic empowerment. Designed to support woman-identifying students already enrolled in a Massachusetts Public Higher Education Institution, scholarships will be available to help an individual complete their degree.

Applicants must currently be enrolled in an accredited degree or certificate program at a Massachusetts Public Higher Education Institution and have completed at least one year towards their degree. The funds from this scholarship will go towards tuition, fees, books and related supplies or equipment for study. The MCSW will award 5 individuals with a scholarship of $5000 each for the 2024-2025 academic year. Read the press release now.
