University at Albany - Initiatives For Women
Scholarship Application


Initiatives for Women


Initiatives For Women (IFW) benefits women students, faculty, and staff and the University at Albany and our community as a whole by providing them the means to advance their educational and professional goals. Through individual donations, corporate and foundation contributions, IFW supports women in a variety of ways.

An all volunteer Committee runs the Initiatives For Women Program under the auspices of the University at Albany Office of the Provost. The Committee members are absolutely dedicated to the IFW motto : SUPPORT HER DREAM.

Initiatives for Women (IFW) awards, generally between $500 and $1500, are designed to enhance educational and career opportunities for women students, staff, and faculty. 
Applications for the twenty-eighth round of awards are due by Friday, April 23, 2021.  You will be notified of the Selection Committee’s decisions in May 2021 before the end of classes.

The awards will be presented at the IFW Summer Celebration on July 29, 2021. We ask that you make every effort to attend this event. Our generous donors attend this Celebration and enjoy meeting the women they have supported.
