The future is female, and we’re not complaining.

In fact, we’re pretty excited about it.

And why shouldn’t we be excited? Women are, in a word, awesome — and we’re not the only ones who think so.

True&Co., an intimate apparel brand based in San Francisco, is hosting the #thefutureisfemale scholarship contest in the hope of empowering women to pursue education.

Whatever you plan to study (or are already studying), True&Co. wants to help you continue learning by awarding a $3,000 scholarship for “the educational course of your choice.”

All you have to do is write a series of short essays detailing what makes you exceptional, along with why (and how) you are or will become a passionate, motivated leader.

For an idea of what kind of empowered, awesome future female leaders True&Co. is looking for, check out last year’s winner in The True&Co. Journal.
