- College Resources for Women Students
There are many challenges that women face within education. One of these challenges is navigating the high cost of education in America. Women pursuing education are still way underrepresented and receive less financial aid than their male classmates. For this reason, the team at CollegeChoice.net created a college resource guide geared toward female students.
Additional resources are included in this guide, such as:
- Advice on Choosing Schools
- Sexual Assault Awareness and more
