The Margaret McNamara Memorial Fund gives 20 scholarships each year to 20 women around the world who want to return to earn a college degree. To earn these awards, a woman has to plan to pursue graduate studies that benefit women and children’s health worldwide. The main criteria is an essay and phone interview to establish a woman’s commitment to improving the lives of underprivileged women and children. These awards are worth $12,000 a year toward college costs, and are renewable for four years.
