Are you a woman over the age of 35 who hasn’t been able to complete your college degree?
Life happens, but there are wonderful organizations like the Jeannette Rankin Foundation which empowers women age 35 and older to complete their college degrees and transform the next chapter of their lives.
Who is Jeannette Rankin?
As the first female Congresswoman representing Montana and a long-time Georgia resident, Jeannette Rankin had strong geographic ties to both states. The sale of her Georgia estate led to the formation of the Jeannette Rankin Foundation in 1976, which now offers unrestricted non-tuition Emerge Grants for women and nonbinary residents aged 25 and above in Georgia and Montana.
