The work of the LCU Fund for Women’s Education addresses the role of housing as a gateway to opportunity for women by clearing the path for low-income scholars to complete college by helping them pay their rent.
Housing insecurity can derail college completion and yet most scholarships don’t cover housing. Our research shows that our students spend almost half of their monthly income on housing.
Since 2001, the fund has awarded nearly $15M to 2,600 scholars. With life-changing degrees in hand, LCU Scholars go on to professions in the arts, health care, education, social work, public administration, religious leadership and criminal justice.
