The Women’s Fund of the Capital Region, in partnership with local educational institutions, supports non-traditional female students in achieving their educational goals as a means to economic wellbeing by awarding scholarships and emergency funds. Our vision is a community where all women are empowered through education to fulfill their greatest potential towards self-sufficiency.

We are a  program of the Capital District Women’s Employment & Resource Center (WERC). Our programs and grants serve women and girls in Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady and Schoharie counties.
