Now Open: Success for Survivors Scholarship Applications Call
October 1, 2021
GFWC is now seeking applications for its 2022 Success for Survivors Scholarship. The scholarship provides survivors of intimate partner violence with financial support as they seek higher education, made possible through generous donations from clubwomen, clubs, State Federations, and other groups.
As one way of recognizing Domestic Violence Awareness Month, consider donating to the GFWC Signature Program Fund this month. Funds donated go directly to the GFWC Success for Survivors Scholarship. It is through your support that GFWC can make the recipients’ dreams a reality. As Karen C. said: “This scholarship will help me finish my degree in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling and help me ‘pay it forward’ by working with disabled clients to support their journey for independence. As a Deaf survivor of DV, this is my dream career. Thank you for helping my dream come true!”

The Mesquite Club, Inc., located in Las Vegas, Nevada, started out the club year with 120 members and now has 132 members. How has the club gained a dozen new members over such a short time? One reason is Club President Cherie Williams’ commitment to raising public awareness of the club in any way possible.
