Attention high school seniors! Planning on going to college? Your volunteer work could help you get a scholarship. The Junior League of Mobile is now accepting applications for their Young Woman Leadership Scholarship. This scholarship is available to young women in their senior year of high school and is available to one young woman in Mobile County and one in Baldwin County. The two scholarship recipients will be awarded a $1500 scholarship each.

 

Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to volunteering and community improvement, innovative and creative actions that reach out to and motivate others, commitment to continued education, and at least one year volunteer experience in addition to school related service requirements. This scholarship sounds perfect for a Girl Scout, who fulfills all of these requirements!

 

The registration deadline is March 15, and there are several requirements to apply.  If you would like an application, call or e-mail Mary Anne Brutkiewicz at 251.344.3330, ext. 1202.

 

 


Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama offers two college scholarships and a lifetime membership scholarship to deserving girls

The deadline for all scholarships is March 1.

 

Named in honor of a past Girl Scouts of the Deep South board president, the Loucretia Hollingsworth Scholarship of $1,000 is awarded each year to a graduating senior Girl Scout who will be enrolled full time at an accredited college or university.

The aim of this scholarship is to reach the girl who may or may not have outstanding academic achievements, but has the ability to develop in college and who has demonstrated a commitment to helping other people.

Selections will be based first and foremost on the applicant's contribution to society through service and her desire to continue this contribution through a career of helping others.

 

The Ellen Autrey Anderson Girl Scout Award is named in honor of a past Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts of South Central Alabama, and donated by her family. This one-time scholarship of $500 is awarded annually to a graduating Senior Girl Scout who best meets the scholarship criteria. Applicants must be enrolled full time in an accredited college or university, have earned the Girl Scout Gold Award through Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama, and have a GPA of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale.

 

The Blanchard Hinton Lifetime Membership Scholarship is awarded yearly to a deserving Girl Scout who plans to continue to be active as an adult volunteer. An essay is required.
