Scholarships and Financial Assistance

Girl Scouts offers many scholarship opportunities at the local and national level.

Locally, the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore offers a competitive scholarship based on need, Keifer-Stevens where a girl may receive $100 to $2000 per girl. Qualifications are based on acceptance to any post-secondary educational institution; financial need; commitment to career/profession; participation in Girl Scouting, such as, earning the Silver and/or Gold Award, and participation in council activities. Other qualifications taken into consideration by the committee are extenuating family circumstances, service and leadership outside Girl Scouting, number of years in Girl Scouting, class rank and other academic indicators.

In addition, GSUSA has compiled a list of universities/colleges, foundations and Girl Scout councils that offer scholarships, awards, and grants to Girl Scouts.  Many of the universities and foundations base their scholarships on receipt of the Gold Award and, of course, registration in that college or university.
