Success for Survivors Scholarship
As part of the GFWC Signature Project: Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention, the GFWC Success For Survivors Scholarship was created in 2012 to lend a helping hand to those impacted by intimate partner violence who are pursuing higher education. The scholarship aims to provide survivors with a means to achieve both financial and personal independence. Since its inception in 2012, GFWC has awarded $50,000 in scholarship funds. In 2015, GFWC was honored to award four recipients with $2,500 scholarships.
