Scholarships

It's no secret that Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character. Therefore, we are often contacted by scholarship-giving entities asking us to publicize scholarship opportunities for girls in our council—and our young alums.

Girl Scouts of the USA keeps a long list of scholarships available to Girl Scouts

Locally, most information sent to GSSNE focuses on opportunities for girls who live in Rhode Island, but the Community Foundation of Southeastern MA administers a long list of scholarships for girls in Massachusetts.
