Greek Women’s University Club is pleased to offer two (2) scholarships of $2,500 each for the 2016-17 school year. Selection of Award Recipients is made by an independent selection committee appointed by the group’s board of directors.

The semi-finalists are then invited for a personal interview. All candidates are advised of their status after each step in the process. Final notifications will be made by mid-May, 2016.
