The Amber Grant Foundation was started in 1998 by WomensNet, in honor of Amber Wigdahl. Wigdahl passed away at just nineteen years old, and was unable to fulfil her career goals. In her memory, WomensNet offers a $10,000 grant every month. At the close of each year, they also give away $25,000 via their Amber Grant.
Once you have applied, you will be qualified for all Amber Grants. In order for your application to be considered for the grant, you must be a woman with a business goal. But you want to apply soon…the cut-off for next month’s $10,000 grant winner and the winner of the $25,000 Amber Grant is October 31st, 2021.
How To Apply:
Complete their online application available here. All you have to do is include a little information about yourself, your business goal and what you would do with the grant money. WomensNet/The Amber Grant Foundation encourages you that “No business dream is too big or too small. Our past Amber Grant recipients have included everything from scientific inventors to bakers. What matters is YOU — the woman (or women) behind the business.”
