Scholarships for Girl Scouts
Please note: if you are searching by state and your council office is in another state than the one you live in, be sure to search both states.
We’ve compiled a list of universities/colleges, foundations, and Girl Scout councils that offer scholarships, awards, and grants to Girl Scouts.
Though the list is updated periodically, be sure to check with your local Girl Scout council for the most recent information for your area. Your council may also offer helpful workshops or other resources for preparing for college.
Remember, earning a Girl Scout Gold Award is an excellent way to give any college or scholarship application that “something extra” to help you stand out from the crowd.
For additional information on college scholarships, contact your high school guidance counselor, reach out to the financial aid office of the school(s) you wish to attend, and check out these websites:
- The College Board

With some targeted research, you can uncover all sorts of helpful information on securing grants and scholarships. As with any online application, always be careful of the information you share.
