The Ladies Making a Difference (LMD) Scholarship Fund was founded on the belief that all girls should have the opportunity to attend the college of their dreams. By removing some of the financial burdens associated with applying to college, the LMD Scholarship Fund plays a vital role in increasing college access.
Each year, thousands of seniors prepare to apply to college--a major decision that will shape not just the next four years of their lives but the trajectory of their careers. With the average application fee costing between $60 and $100, application costs can pose a significant finacial burden for first-generation college students.
Fee waivers can help eliminate this barrier. Research has shown that simply providing information packets and fee waivers to high-achieving, low income students increases the number of college applications by 19%. You can help ensure that application fees are not a barrier for low-income students when applying to and enrolling in college. By donating to the LMD Scholarship Fund, your donations will go directly toward supporting the college aspirations of young women.
