Some flowers grow best in full sun
We help fund the women's college experience.
A women’s college can provide that full sun, a unique environment with women at the center, that enables a student to thrive and strive to achieve her true potential. It is the spirit of these colleges that inspired The Sunflower Initiative to provide scholarships for women to attend the women’s college of their choice.
The Sunflower Initiative is the nation’s only independent organization fully dedicated to providing scholarships to students who choose to attend a women’s college.
