“The Jeannette Rankin Scholar Grant released a powerful unstoppable

belief in me that a low-income woman over 35 with three children

can achieve what many see as the impossible. The grant gave

me monetary support with no burden. This made my decision to

register for classes possible.”

— Marcie, JRF Scholar, BS Nursing, University of Texas

“Now, into its fourth decade, the Jeannette Rankin Foundation has helped more than a thousand women with the same level of desire and determination displayed by its founders.”

“It is very important for women to have a voice and bring different values to a world that is out of balance in so many ways. I want empowered lives for all women, and education is the one thing that really brings this about.”
