The York Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) is accepting applications for the 2014 scholarship. The Mae Millstone – York NOW scholarship will be awarded to at least one York County woman in the amount of $1000. Many years, we are able to award more than one scholarship.

Eligibility criteria: a woman of any age and with any type of career plan who identifies as a feminist may apply. The successful applicant will be a resident of (or a student in) York County. Students attending school elsewhere who have a permanent address in York County may apply. The scholarship may be used for tuition or fees for any type of course or training class. We have funded college classes, but also such courses as welding training or driver education classes. Applicants do not have to currently be enrolled to be eligible. We are interested in helping women take the first, or the next step. Older women, minority women, and women interested in non-traditional careers are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applications are due by April 30, and the scholarship(s) will be awarded in May. See the scholarship application for details.

 2012 Mae Millstone – York NOW Scholarship

Our chapter is proud to announce that we are accepting applications for the 2012 Mae Millstone – York NOW Scholarship.  The deadline for applications is April 30, and the scholarship(s) awarded in May.

We will be awarding at least one scholarship of at least $1000.  Last year, we awarded a total of $2750 to four women.   Former scholarship winners may apply again this year.  Applicants may reside outside York County if they are attending school, but should consider their York County address their permanent one.

The scholarship is open to any York County woman for any type of training or educational experience.  While we often award scholarships to college students, we have also funded such things as welding school and driving classes.  We will consider any request that would help a woman take the next step toward attaining her educational or life goals.  Older women, minority women, and women pursuing non-traditional careers are strongly encouraged to apply.

Please complete the application and be sure to cover all three points in your essay.  The application is available on this website, or by contacting Delma Welch at 717.846.2089 or at delma1947@comcast.net.

York NOW will again be awarding at least one $1000 scholarship to a York County feminist.
