Girls, Inc. Scholarship Applications Accepted |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
Girls Inc. of Fort Smith is proud to offer scholarships to girls who have attended and/or given their time to our local organization. Our scholarships are available due to the generous support of Jim & June Alexander, Dr. William C. Holmes, Roger E. & Charlene Curtis Memorial Fund, ABF Do-Gooders & ABF Matching Fund and other supporters that give to the fund annually.
Since the inception of the Girls Incorporated scholarship fund, we have awarded just under $260,000 to 147 girls who are graduating high school or completing their college education. “The scholarship dollars awarded range from year to year as well as the number of scholarships awarded, but we are proud to offer this opportunity to young ladies who are choosing to further their education that have been an important part of our program at some point in their lives. The program has come a long way since giving out the first scholarship in 1980 which was $1000,” stated Amanda Daniels, Executive Director. The funds are awarded to applicants who have been involved in the program for at least two years, and who embody the organization’s motto ‘Strong, Smart, Bold’.
