Women of an international background, including foreign students, immigrants, or first-generation Americans, who are first year entrants to a U.S. college or university program in Fall 2021 are eligible to apply for the Red Thread Scholarship Program. Applicants to graduate programs are not eligible. There are no GPA or U.S. residency requirements.

The application consists of several short-answer questions, two essays, and two letters of recommendation. We require that at least one of your recommenders be an academic reference, such as a teacher or a guidance counselor. Both the application form and the letters of recommendation must be submitted online by the application deadline to be considered.

We will select a short list of candidates to interview by phone. Interviews will be 30 minutes long.

Applications for the 2020-2021 Scholarship Program will be accepted from January 15, 2021 until February 26, 2021. Applications that are incomplete or late will not be considered. Award announcements will be made in May 2021.
