A new merit-based college scholarship opportunity for high school women who are college-bound has just been announced. The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) is made up of 26 inter/national sororities and is the largest advocacy and support organization for the women’s-only sorority experience. Beginning with women graduating high school in 2023, NPC plans to award 10 college scholarships of US$2,000 each annually through their NPC Centennial Scholarships Program. The scholarships may be used to offset college tuition, dues and fees.
The NPC Centennial Scholarships online application form is available now through March 15, 2023. Recipients will be announced in May 2023.
The applicant will be asked to do the following via the form:
- Attach a resume describing the applicant’s academic pursuits, school/extra-curricular involvement and community involvement.
- Provide contact information for an individual who can provide a letter of support/recommendation. The individual providing the letter should hold the scholarship applicant in high regard and be able to speak clearly about the student’s commitment to high academic achievement, school activities and community involvement. (Note: The individual will receive an email with instructions on how to upload the letter to the scholarship application system.)
- Write a short essay describing either the applicant’s current experience with service and leadership in a women’s-only or women’s-focused organization (e.g., Girl Scouts, Girls on the Run, Girls Inc., local organizations for women and girls) or the applicant’s plans to participate in a women’s-only or women’s-focused organization during college.
The scholarship application can be found on the NPC website: npcwomen.org/centennial.
