Each year the League of Women Voters of Sacramento County awards a $2,000 Anne Rudin Scholarship to a currently enrolled female student at a local college or university who has advanced to upper division or graduate level studies.  

The successful candidate must be enrolled in a Public Policy or Public Administration program.  Past recipients include students from UC Davis, CSUS, USC-Sacramento campus, and McGeorge School of Law.  We kindly ask your help in encouraging eligible female students to apply for this scholarship which honors, and is named for, the first woman elected mayor of Sacramento

Enclosed please find an explanation of the scholarship and a copy of the application form.  Additional applications may be downloaded from the League of Women Voters of Sacramento County web site, at  Please distribute this information as widely as possible to prospective candidates.
