In this day and age, you might be surprised to find out that there are a number of high paying scholarships which are just open to women. This is because they are trying to encourage more women to study specific subjects (particularly STEM subjects) where women are still under represented, or to help women overcome specific barriers.
Here is a selection of some scholarships just for women. Even though you will see that for a few of these the deadline for this year has passed, they will most likely be offered again next year, so do take note if you are eligible.
