Girls Incorporated of Greater Atlanta proudly announces the solicitation of nominations for its annual Strong, Smart & Bold Scholarship Awards. These scholarships recognize three young ladies whose positive attitudes are an inspiration to all who meet her. One winner from each category (strong, smart, bold) will receive an enrichment award.
This year’s scholarships will be presented at the 2017 Strong, Smart & Bold Awards Luncheon on August 18, 2017 at the W Atlanta Midtown. Each scholarship winner and one guest will be invited to attend the luncheon to be honored at this time. Attendance at the luncheon is required for all scholarship winners.
We are looking for girls who embody our mission through their actions each day and who inspire their peers to be strong, smart and bold. If you or a girl you know meets this criteria, we encourage application for a 2017 Strong, Smart & Bold Scholarship. This award may be used for college tuition or education-related purchases such as books or fees.
