The Inspired Woman Scholarship Fund is held by the North Dakota Community Foundation as a restricted non-endowment fund. This fund began in 2017 with gifts from readers of Inspired Woman magazine and contributions from Inspired Woman Enterprises, LLP. Management of the fund was transferred to NDCF in August 2018.

The intent purpose of the fund is to assist students with their higher education expenses. $500 or more will be awarded to students pursuing careers in print, broadcast, online, and visual journalism. Second year college undergraduates and graduate students with a GPA of 3.0 or higher are eligible. Applications will be accepted January 1 – April 1.

Preference will be given to students who exhibit leadership, steadfast work ethic, desire and willingness to learn and grow personally and professionally, creativity in writing, journalistic integrity, and involvement with journalism activities that are collegiate or community based.
