Scholarship Opportunity - The Riley's Way Foundation Call for Kindness

Teens across the country can enter to win up to $3,000 to drive change that inspires kindness and build meaningful connections in their communities. Fifteen teen-led projects will receive this award, along with the opportunity to take part in the Riley's Way Kind Leadership Series. Applications are due March 31st.

This opportunity is perfect for Girl Scouts pursuing the Silver and/or Gold Award and who seek funding. This may also be a good fit for Girl Scouts seeking ongoing financial support to help sustain or build upon their highest award project (of course, it's deal for projects to sustain independently of Girl Scouts). Girls can visit the scholarship database to learn more.

The majority of scholarships and awards, like the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes (apply by March 31st), are most relevant for Gold Award Girl Scouts, so be sure to keep this on your radar!
