NEW SCHOLARSHIPS




NEW SCHOLARSHIPS FOR LOCAL GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS The September Hotline was full of inspiring articles and reminders of the wonderful outcomes we can achieve as strong, intelligent and well-educated women. This year the Board agreed to add a new category of scholarship recipients: Indian River County High School graduating girls from Vero Beach High School, Indian River Charter School and Sebastian River High School. Here is our opportunity to support local high school girls who have achieved academic excellence, demonstrated leadership potential in high school and have financial need. The Scholarship Committee established an ambitious goal of $2,000 to be awarded to two girls for school year 2022-23. A committee of five AAUW members will review all applications, select and and notify scholarship recipients. All donations will be added to our Local Programs Fund, and upon Board decision, will be paid directly to the college of choice upon our receipt of their acceptance letter. The awards will be presented at the Indian River School District’s “Scholarship Night” in the spring, giving more exposure to our mission and outreach. “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."
