Woman's Century Club Scholarship

Website: Woman's Century Club


The Woman’s Century Club connects Seattle-area women interested in learning about women’s history, and provides a place of connection and inspiration for women of all generations and walks of life. We seek to honor the graces of the past while investing in the young women of the future.

Since its founding in 1891, the Woman’s Century Club has provided annual scholarship support to deserving women through local colleges and universities.

The club today continues that tradition by awarding a scholarship each year to an outstanding junior woman student, at a Seattle-area college or university, who exemplifies the traditions of female leadership and service that our club’s founders sought to encourage. The scholarship is for $2,000; the recipient also receives a one-year membership in the Club.


To apply for the scholarship, you must be a female U.S. citizen in your junior year at a fully accredited Seattle-area college or university, with high scholastic ability as well as financial need.

The club was founded in Seattle in 1891 by suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt and other female pathbreakers, including Seattle’s first woman superintendent of schools and the first woman to graduate in law from Yale. You can learn more about the club and our history at www.womanscenturyclub.org.
