Funding her Future



As a Girl Scout you may still be trying to figure out how you will fund your future, but as a troop leader, volunteer, or parent you know exactly what it means to help a girl reach her goals. Did you know you can help them with their journey to college? GSUSA and GSGNY offers plenty of opportunities for Ambassadors who are planning to attend to college (and some scholarships are renewable for up to four years!)

This renewable scholarship is available to graduating seniors who have been a Girl Scout for at least two years by the time they are admitted to college. Britenstool Scholarship awards are based heavily on academic achievement.   

Girl Scouts of USA Opportunities:

Did you know many colleges and universities across the U.S. offer scholarships to Girl Scouts? Check out the GSUSA Scholarships page to get the full list of participating institutions.

During the application process, many high school seniors will go to their teachers and guidance counselors for letters of recommendation. A Girl Scout may come to you to for this important step in the college application process, since you have often guided her to take risks, set goals, and take the lead. Check out these tips for writing an effective letter of recommendation so you can continue supporting your Girl Scouts as they take the next step into their future!
