CHICAGO, March 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Women's History Month is an annual celebration of the contributions women have made to America's history, culture, and society. Fastweb (www.fastweb.com), the leading website for scholarship and financial aid information and a member of the Monster network, is dedicated to helping the future generation of women leaders meet their educational goals.
In 1987, Congress passed a resolution dedicating March as Women's History Month. According to the National Women's History Project, the theme for 2016 is, "Working to Form a More Perfect Union: Honoring Women in Public Service and Government". This honors women who have shaped America's history and its future through their public service and government leadership.
Today there are a variety of scholarship opportunities for women in academic areas from technology to sports media to environmental sciences and more. In Fastweb's new resource, Scholarships for Women, focus has been placed on bringing together important scholarship opportunities that cover many educational interests and all education levels. Applications are open today on many awards with various award payouts to help students with paying for school.
