It's no secret that Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character. Therefore, we are often contacted by scholarship-giving entities asking us to publicize scholarship (and other) opportunities for girls in our council -- and our young alumnae. We have listed them here for your convenience, arranged by deadline.
Most information sent to us focuses on opportunities for girls who live in Rhode Island, but please click here for a long list of sponsorships administered by the Community Foundation of Southeastern MA.
The scholarship provides funding to support the registration cost (up to $450) to attend one art class at a Rhode Island institution.
Deadline is 5pm on March 14, 2014.
Interested students will submit applications and artwork online via JPEG format. Click here to apply.
The East Greenwich Rotary Club has been providing scholarships for deserving young high school seniors for the past 30 years. Included are two scholarships, one for $2,000 and one for $500, thanks to a generous donation of $62,500 from Amica Mutual Insurance Company on behalf of its retiring Director and former Senior Executive Vice President, Andrew Erickson.
These scholarships are available to graduating high school seniors in 2014 who have been or are now involved with Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts. The candidate needs to live in East Greenwich or a contiguous community (Coventry, Exeter, North Kingstown, Warwick, West Warwick, West Greenwich) or have been a member of a scouting unit in one of these communities; have enrolled in a college or tech program in fall following graduation; and submit an essay of how scouting has affected them.
