The Ingrid Skulstad Williams Scholarship for Women Pursuing Postsecondary Education is a needs-based scholarship dedicated to helping women get the education necessary to have a successful career.
Ms. Skulstad Williams was born and grew up in Nazi-occupied Europe and immigrated to the United States as a young adult. Her husband passed away unexpectedly at a young age, and she faced the challenge of becoming self- supporting. She returned to the classrooms of UCLA Extension in the late 1970s to pursue business courses and went on to 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 believed strongly that lifelong learning can change lives. Each year, in perpetuity, UCLA Extension will award a minimum of one scholarship up to $5,000 toward course fees within a certificate program.
Applications for this scholarship will be accepted until Friday, December 4, 2020 at 4pm.
