Seeking Success for Survivors Scholarship Applications
October 1, 2020
The call for GFWC’s 2021 Success for Survivors Scholarship applications is now open. 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.
Launching the call for applications on October 1 is just one of the many ways that GFWC observes National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Heidi is both a shining example and inspired advocate of the belief in meaningful volunteering.

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.
