Legacy of Heroines Scholarship Program

The Legacy of Heroines program, launched in 1996, provides scholarships to outstanding students who seek involvement in and knowledge about the political process and public service. Scholarship awards are based on academic merit, leadership and specific criteria established by scholarship donors.

As part of the criteria set by donors, Legacy of Heroines scholarship recipients are required to participate in mentoring and leadership development programs through the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics. These programs include field trips, dinners with speakers, campus activities and skills development workshops.
