G.I.R.L.s are well prepared for the next step in their education. GSNI is proud to offer these scholarship opportunities.
Through an application process, Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois (GSNI) awards two types of scholarships each year to qualifying GSNI members. To qualify for a GSNI scholarship, a girl must be a registered Girl Scout graduating from high school in 2018 and furthering her education by being enrolled, or planning to enroll, in college for the Fall 2018 semester. Applicants must also demonstrate their understanding of the Girl Scout Promise and Law, live those values, and must be actively involved in Girl Scouting during their high school years. Girls can apply for the GSNI Girl Scout Ambassador Scholarship and/or the GSNI Girl Scout Gold Award Scholarship.
The GSNI Girl Scout Ambassador Scholarship asks girls to share their Girl Scout experiences, their community service, and their leadership roles during their junior and senior years in high school. Past GSNI Ambassador Scholarship recipients include girls who have completed Journeys, earned various awards and badges, and led activities at service unit events or day camps – the list of their Girl Scout accomplishments is endless! Girls have also been student council members, part of church groups, and volunteered with various community organizations.
The GSNI Girl Scout Gold Award Scholarship requires applicants to be graduating high school in 2018 and to have earned their Girl Scout Gold Award by March 14, 2018. This scholarship focuses on the girl’s Gold Award project along with her other Girl Scout, school, and community activities.
