Amber Grant

About the Grant

In 1998, WomensNet established the Amber Grant to pay tribute to the remarkable Amber Wigdahl, whose entrepreneurial dreams were cut short at 19. Fast forward to today, and WomensNet continues this meaningful tradition by generously awarding a minimum of $30,000 monthly in Amber Grant funds. The Amber Grants consist of four distinct women’s business grants: the Monthly Amber Grant, the Startup Grant, and the Annual $25,000 Amber Grant.

Program Overview

To be eligible for these grants, applicants simply need to submit one application, and they will automatically be considered for all the grants they qualify for. These grants aim to provide support to women-owned businesses in both Canada and the United States.

Application Window

The application process is straightforward. Spend just a few minutes sharing details about yourself and your business aspirations – no need to tackle lengthy, complicated forms. By submitting one application, you automatically become eligible for all grants relevant to your business. Grant winners are revealed by the 23rd of the subsequent month. It’s that easy to take the first step toward realizing your entrepreneurial dreams!

The deadline for the Monthly Amber Grant is set at 11:59 pm Eastern Time on the final day of every month. Notably, the $25,000 Annual Amber Grant is reserved for one deserving recipient selected from the pool of previous Monthly Amber Grant winners. Simplifying the process for applicants, it’s worth emphasizing that a single application is all it takes to be in the running for all eligible grants. This streamlined approach ensures a seamless and efficient consideration process for aspiring business owners.
