The Louisiana Legislative Women's Caucus Foundation along with the Louisiana women legislators are currently accepting applications for the 2020 Educational Advancement Opportunity (EAO) Scholarship.

The deadline to apply is Friday, February 7, 2020. The EAO Scholarship application are available online at www.llwc.louisiana.gov. Scholarship recipients will be announced in early April 2020.

Recipients will also be recognized and celebrated at the State Capitol in late April 2020 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The women legislators through the LLWC Foundation are in their tenth year of awarding scholarships to deserving young women and girls in Louisiana. Since 2010, $108,000 in scholarships have been awarded to help students with the ever increasing costs of education.

Fundraising to support the LLWC Foundation Scholarship Program was propelled by the passion of the women legislators who wanted to make a positive difference in the lives of Louisiana women and girls.
