Scholarships

Many scholarship opportunities available to Girl Scouts are based on community service projects, like earning the Gold Award. Others are offered across the nation and through local organizations/businesses.

Our council offers scholarships to graduating high school seniors ranging from $500 to $1,000 awards.  These one-time scholarships are offered only to girls entering their freshman year of higher education.  All eligible Girl Scouts must submit an application by the listed due date in order to qualify for consideration. You may apply for as many of the scholarships as you wish, and only one set of application materials is required. However, only one scholarship may be awarded to each applicant.

GSDSW offers the following scholarships:

Betty Jo Green Morgan Graduating Senior Scholarship, $500
Grace Rocha Graduating Senior Scholarship, $500

Megan Churchman Gold Award Scholarship, $1,000
Mary Wynn HInkle Gold Award Scholarship, $1,000
Janice Eleanor Hill Matthews Gold Award Scholarship $1,000

GIRL SCOUT LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE

The Girl Scout Leadership Institute (GSLI) is where a lot of the magic of the Girl Scout National 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.

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.

In 2014,  GSDSW provided scholarships to three girls to attend the GSLI! One of these scholarships is funded through the Carolyn Partee Parker Travel Exploration Award.

Congratulations to our 2014 Recipients of the GSLI Scholarship:

  • Allison Denny
  • Anyssa Phillips
  • Carmen Dragun
