ATLANTA (March 22, 2017) – Applications are open for the 2017 Emerge Scholarships available to Georgia women whose education has been delayed or interrupted because of personal hardships or challenges such as divorce, illness, or financial circumstances. The scholarships, up to $5,000, are for eligible undergraduate degrees.
