Girls At-Risk Educational Scholarship Program
The Girls at-Risk Educational Scholarship Program was created in 1999. The Commission has taken proceeds from this and other annual events in order to provide over 300 at-risk girls supplemental educational scholarships.
These girls and their special and varied circumstances are given the option to use their funds not solely for tuition; but for such fundamental things as books, medical insurance, school supplies, child care and clothing.
The Educational Scholarship Application for 2015-16 School year is now available. We encourage interested candidates to review the Scholarship Award Criteria and submit a completed application to the Commission.
