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!”
Lauren Smith said she loves being able to give back to her community and local school district as a member of GFWC Eupora New Century Club in Mississippi.

Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
