Women’s Independence Scholarship Program

WISP is available nationally to women who have left an abusive domestic situation and who are pursuing an education designed to provide economic independence for themselves and their children.

Applications should be submitted as early as possible, as it can take up to 2 months to review a new application. With this in mind an applicant ought to submit her application at least 2 months before the start date of the program to be attended. WISP, Inc. cannot guarantee that applications received after that period will be reviewed in time for funds to be awarded by the desired date.

However, we have no cutoff date. We accept applications at any time. The fall semester is the busiest time of year. Applications are handled in the order in which they are received in complete form, and it will take up to two months to review a new application.
