P.E.O. Educational Loan Fund
Deadline: See Website for further information
Educational Loan Fund (ELF), established in 1907, makes loans available to qualified women who desire higher education and are in need of financial assistance. A student must be recommended by a local chapter of the P.E.O. Sisterhood and within two years of completing her course of study, but not within four months. The current maximum loan is $12,000 for masters students and up to $20,000 for doctoral students. Interest is billed annually with principal payments to begin after graduation from the program for which the loan was granted.
Go to the fund’s website for more information.
