Mission Statement

Empowering women of international backgrounds to achieve their academic and career dreams, one college scholarship at a time.

Description

Red Thread Foundation for Women is dedicated to supporting the aspirations of women of international backgrounds pursuing higher education for the first time. Our founding members represent former international students, immigrants, and first-generation Americans who benefitted tremendously from academic and professional support, and decided to give back.

Our small nonprofit extends scholarship and mentorship support to women who draw strength from a rich, multicultural identity and who embody a spirit of international leadership. Since 2011, we have awarded over $22,000 in scholarship funds to women starting their college/university education.
