WHO SHOULD APPLY?
Our mission is to champion women who, like our namesake B.A., seek to make a difference in the world. We have six “BA Values”, and invite those who embody and advance these values to apply. Anyone who is female and/or identifies as a woman can apply. We invite women from all academic institutions to apply to EmpowHER, including community colleges, online universities, state schools, and private colleges or universities. Women of color, immigrants or recent immigrants regardless of citizenship status, first-generation Americans and first-generation college students, members of the LGBTQ+ (including nonbinary or gender non-conforming) community, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR PARTICIPANTS?
We select participants who we believe best embody the mission and values of BA Women. We also champion women for whom a small amount of support will make a significant difference. We are committed to supporting women from all backgrounds, and providing scholarships for our programs.
