Each year, Girls Incorporated of the Greater Capital Region awards around $25,000 in college scholarships.
There are currently four awards to apply for:
William G. Broughton Fellowship for Outstanding Achievement, the Anna C. Hume Scholarship, and the Dorothea E. Allen Scholarship.
The William G. Broughton Fellowship for Outstanding Achievement is an award given to assist a present or former member of Girls Incorporated in pursuing study in any field in which she/he has a developing talent or ability. This can be an academic pursuit (college, trade school, graduate school), an athletic skill (such as gymnastics camp) or an artistic or technical interest (such as computer training or music lessons). This scholarship will be awarded in May.
The Anna C. Hume Scholarship has been made possible by a bequest from Anna C. Hume, a staunch supporter of Girls Incorporated, and additional funds donated in her memory by members of the Hume family. All candidates will be invited to a personal interview. The Hume Scholarship is intended to supplement the normal sources of financial aid.
To apply, or for more information call: Girls Incorporated 518-374-9800. Applications are made available each November. To read more about this year’s scholarship winners visit the Girls Inc. News section.
