High Point Enterprise, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1974, High Point, North Carolina 16b High Point Enterprise sunday october 20 1974 new educational programs designed for older women by Sandra Gittens new York a finding older women to go Back to College is not a problem the problem is finding enough Money for scholarships and innovative programs which eliminate the hassles of reentry says Elizabeth Cless director for the Center for continuing education and special academic programs at Claremont colleges Calif mrs Cless was recently in York As a member of a fou member panel to fund 50 colleges and universities in which to distribute of a special scholarship fund for continuing education of Over 35 right now she claims there Are Only five or six colleges and universities around the country which have made available reentry educational planning for women these programs she said vary around the country but any woman can come there and have a pre admissions advisor they will find out what she needs How she can get her degree the fastest How she can do it within her financial Means within limitations and her family limitations its a new concept in higher education she notes yet Money is the Crux of the problem the scholarship sponsored by a hair products manufacturer int going to govern far but what mrs Cless is hoping for is that other companies will recognize the vast intellectual capacity of the mature woman and put their Money where their Mouth is there have been scholarships throughput the country for women Over 25 primarily because any woman Over 25 can usually Only go to College part time she says almost Al available scholarships and fellowships Are Tor full yet it often takes very lit Money to get a woman Back in school most monies Are used for either text books transportation or babysitting or the Combina Tion of the three basically she says this shows the woman that someone has Confidence enough in her to give her some Money it helps her esteem not Only with family but with friends while giving her the self Confidence she needs obviously in not talking about the woman who is suddenly divorced or widowed and who has no Money in talking about the woman who has a Little Money of her own or her husbands and needs just enough to help out and this is More effective than any amount of Money can be because it says that she is somebody that has potential from the various studies Shes seen mrs Cless says it has been shown that a woman returning to school does better than before any woman who been away for school a Long time is scared to death and she int sure she can compete Cless adds a woman can be Phi Beta Kappa head of her class when Shes 21 if she comes Back to school without exception she does better now we have All kinds of theories about this but part of it is motivation when you have the guts to go Back to school after the age of 30 you really want to go and you know whats important and what int and youre not out looking for a husband digressing for a moment mrs Cless sought to bring out an important Point put simply she said a lot of companies by Law now must fill jobs that require business skills but the women these companies Are looking for were not geared in that direction when they were 21 and they need women with a lot of maturity and a lot of judgment so if affirmative action is going to work it Means companies Are going to have to make an invest ment and Send some of these Bright older women Back to College to get the particular expertise there looking for this int going to last forever theres
