We are committed to ensuring all girls have the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouts. Powered by generous donations, our various scholarships pave the way for life-changing experiences and opportunities girls won’t find anywhere else. Gifts of all sizes are perfect and make a strong impact for members in need.

Travel Scholarship

Launched by the council’s Global Action Volunteer Team, the Travel Scholarship helps Girl Scouts become more knowledgeable, compassionate citizens of the world through global programming and travel opportunities. Scholarship funds provide girls with the resources to plan and pursue travel, from council-sponsored day trips to international journeys through the Destinations program.

Gold Award Scholarship

The Gold Award Scholarship is a post-secondary education scholarship awarded to Gold Award Girl Scouts in honor of their commitment to making the world a better place. High school seniors who received their Gold Award in our council are eligible to apply.

Financial Assistance

In order to remove financial barriers that may interfere, we offer funds to help members who would be unable to join in Girl Scout activities without financial support from the council. Donations to Financial Assistance provide support for membership dues, uniform and program materials, staff and adult leader training, and camp and program fees.
