Scholarships are an important part of our work. Scholarships can help women create opportunities for meaningful careers and financial security. The Janesville Branch is proud to offer several scholarships to area students each year.

High School Scholarship: Available to high school seniors in our members’ communities. Contact your school counselor for scholarship applications.

Project Renew Scholarship: Available to Janesville area women who have been out of high school for at least one year and are resuming their education after being interrupted due to financial hardship or family responsibilities.
