Scholar Profiles

Each year, some 150 women receive crucial housing funding from the LCU Fund for Women’s Education, distributed through our grant-making partners. Women selected for funding reflect the diversity of New York City itself—not only in their chosen profession, but in their age, cultural background, race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, language, sexual identity, and physical ability. Scholars may be undergraduate or graduate scholars, enrolled in full-time or part-time programs. Please note that the LCU Fund does not grant funds to individuals; funds are disbursed through our grant-making partners, which in turn grant stipends according to the LCU Fund’s eligibility criteria. If you are interested in applying for a housing grant from the LCU Fund, please contact your institution for application instructions.

Our scholars often tell us that their LCU Fund support was instrumental in achieving their degrees. Meet some of our inspirational scholars below.
