I'm looking for a charitable organization that I can make a donation to that helps women get an education.

As part of the application process for my new employer I was asked -- seemingly as a hypothetical -- what I would do if I had $250 to donate to a worthy charity. I said that I would donate it to an education-related charity because of the impact education has had on my life. In particular, I said I would donate it to needy women because there are more barriers to education for women.
Except it wasn't a hypothetical at all. Now that I've been hired, they're giving me $250 to donate to the charity of my choosing. So what's a great charity that helps women go to school on a need basis and could use $250? I'm thinking about something along the lines of a scholarship fund, but I would be open to other ideas. Thanks!
