There are some scholarships specifically for Women entering the skilled trade and technical fields. There are also woman-specific scholarships available for those entering the culinary arts career field, such as those awarded by the Culinary Institute of America (CIA). These are merit-based and the student must carry a high GPA of 3.2.

For full-time students who are entering STEM fields where Women aren’t well-represented, such as economics, engineering, science, and data security, there’s the American Association of University Women fellowships and grants.
