Apply Now for the $5,000 Ingrid Skulstad Williams Scholarship for Women

 

Continue the legacy of Ingrid Skulstad Williams by achieving your educational goals. 

The Ingrid Skulstad Williams Scholarship is a needs-based scholarship dedicated to helping women get the education necessary to have a successful career. Each year, winners of the scholarship are awarded up to $5,000 to help them reach their goal of pursuing and completing a certificate program at UCLA Extension.

Ms. Skulstad Williams attended UCLA Extension in the late 1970s to pursue business courses, which helped her launch a successful career in the travel industry. Through her estate, Ms. Skulstad Williams established this scholarship endowment to help women who would otherwise not have the financial means or opportunity to attend postsecondary education. Ms. Skulstad Williams strongly believed that lifelong learning can change lives.

Applications for this scholarship will be accepted from Monday, April 23, 2018, until Monday, May 21, 2018. The submission packet requires letters of recommendation, transcripts, and more, so get a head start on the process.
