The following scholarships are being awarded in 2014. You must be a currently registered Girl Scout to apply.

2014 Girl Scout Leadership Institute

What is the Girl Scout Leadership Institute?

The Girl Scout Leadership Institute (GSLI) is where a lot of the magic of convention happens! It is a triennial conference that provides girls 14 and older with three days of leadership skill-building activities tied to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE). Girls tell us they want to make a real difference in the world, so GSLI 2014 will focus on big issues that girls across the country and around the globe are passionate about.

Why is it special?

At the GSLI, girls will…

  • get the latest information on their chosen issues from experts in the field
  • work together on solutions with girls from around the globe
  • learn techniques for innovation, advocacy, and planning
  • return home ready to make a specific impact in their communities and councils

The GSLI experience will give each girl the opportunity to make new friends, develop important skills, learn about new planning processes, and take advantage of a support system that will be there to meet her needs—all in a fun and engaging way.

This year GSDSW will provide scholarships for four girls to attend the GSLI! One of these scholarships is funded through the Carolyn Partee Parker Travel Exploration Award.
