Until Dec. 15, the club will be accepting applications for two scholarships — the Women’s Opportunity Award and the Violet Richardson Award.
The Women’s Opportunity Award is a $500 award for women who are motivated to further their education and improve their employment prospects. The applicant must have a financial need and must be the financial provider for her family. In addition, she must be attending or be accepted to a vocational program or undergraduate degree program. The funds awarded can be used to defray costs such as books, transportation, babysitting, or any other costs associated with attaining higher education. The winner of the local award is eligible for the award at the regional and federation level.
The Violet Richardson Award is for girls ages 14-17 who demonstrate leadership ability and are involved in volunteer service.
An application, along with two reference forms, are due by Dec. 15. The application can be submitted online at www.soroptimist.org. For questions, email email@example.com
