Does the idea of going somewhere new, doing something different and meeting people from everywhere you can imagine sound like fun? If so, a Girl Scout destination will allow you to do just that! And now GSSA is offering you the chance to receive a scholarship to help make your travel dreams a reality.
We will award scholarships to two Girl Scouts to attend GSUSA Destinations in 2010. Thanks to the Barbara Gilewicz Travel Scholarship Fund and private donors, we are able to offer one $1,000 and one $500 scholarship to deserving Girl Scouts. Applicants must be 14-18 years old and registered for the 2009-2010 membership year. Visit the Girl Scout destinations Web page www.studio2B.org/destinations for trip descriptions, current offerings and applications.
A volunteer committee will award scholarships based on a girl's desire and suitability as determined by her application package. Completed applications, references, and essays must be submitted to Mary Anne Brutkiewicz in the Mobile Service Center by November 9, 2009, for consideration. Those awarded will be notified within 10 days. Assignment of scholarships is contingent upon receipt of sufficient quality applications and acceptance to the destination.
