WGU Women In Leadership Scholarship

Western Governors University (WGU) encourages applications from all individuals who have the capacity and determination to complete a rigorous competency-based online degree program. They need more women at the table (including sitting at the head). It’s good for business, good for the economy, and good for all of us as a culture. That’s why they are offering the WGU Women in Leadership Scholarship, worth up to $2,000 ($500 per term up to four terms), to women who are ready to ramp up their careers, break through that glass ceiling, and share what they have to offer the workplace.

WGU is very mission driven. Created to expand access to higher education through online, competency-based degree programs, WGU’s mission has remained one of helping hardworking adults meet their educational goals and improve their career opportunities.


  • WGU is only accepting applications from individuals living in the U.S., Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as from U.S. military personnel and their families at overseas installations.
  • WGU Washington is also now accepting applications from Canadian residents in certain select geographic areas. (An Enrollment Counselor has more information about which areas are eligible to submit applications.)
