FOR Women


special recognition


women's education


No matter where you are in life, you can be a Woman of Wonder.

It is the support and encouragement you gift to others. It is the care you give yourself.

A Woman of Wonder embraces life, steps out in faith to find more for herself, accepts the challenge to provide more for her family, and helps others along the way.

We invite you to:

Apply for our scholarships.

Volunteer for our organization.

Donate to our college scholarship funds.

And we thank you for Bringing More to Women's Lives.

~ Woman of Wonder


We can't wait to meet you.


who qualifies
for the scholarship


Scholarships are awarded to women who are Washington State residents, who are accepted to an accredited college as a full or part-time student, who demonstrate need through a current year Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), and demonstrate desire via a 250-350 word, personal essay.

Preference is given to single moms, women raised by a single parent, or women on their own with little or no support.

First scholarships were awarded Spring 2019. Upcoming awards will occur mid 2020.

Your best investment


invest in women

Woman of Wonder offers a chance for you to invest in the education of Washington women who desire to design, code, engineer, advance clean energy, develop better farming and winery techniques, sustain natural resources such as forestry, work in medicine, or medical research. Your donation ignites progress in Washington and demonstrates how powerful we can be as a balanced, equally valued and paid team resource: women and men.
The Columbia River rushes through colossal lava flows, slips through rich rain forests, and harsh, semi-arid landscapes. Its behemoth force created the majestic Columbia River Gorge, and on it's way to the Pacific it sings Nature's, lyrical music.
Woman of Wonder dips her oars into the waters and joins the melody, sending ripples of opportunity to women who wish to grasp a chance today and forge a fulfilling career now.
