The B.A. Rudolph Foundation currently funds two types of scholarships: those for the EmpowHER summer program and one at the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, Arkansas.

As a progressive organization, we value freedom of choice, opportunity for all, respect to all, and cooperation among all in a complex world that requires multi-faceted solutions. The B.A. Rudolph Foundation is committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. In that spirit, we are particularly dedicated to reaching applicants from a broad spectrum of qualified people. Dreamers, first-generation college students, LGBTQI individuals, people of color and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply to each of our scholarships.
