Girls Inc. of the Berkshires Scholarships

CE19_for scholarship page2

Each year, Girls Inc. of the Berkshires Scholarship Program provides scholarships to young women pursuing post-secondary education. Our goal is to make college more accessible to young women by offsetting some costs. This year, $10,000 in scholarships will be given to area girls pursuing further education beyond high school. Our partners, the Ruth P. Boraski Funds for Girls Inc. of the Berkshires, Berkshire Community College, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, the Rotary Club of Pittsfield and Zonta Club of Berkshire County, make it possible to offer this support to young women as they work toward building their future.

The scholarships will be awarded at the 29th Ruth P. Boraski Celebration Evening on May 2, 2019. The evening is a celebration of the accomplishments of young women and female leaders in our community. In addition to scholarship presentations, we recognize an area woman who makes a difference in the Berkshires and serves as a role model for girls with the “She Knows Where She’s Going” award. This year, Patricia Begrowicz, President and Co-Founder of Onyx Specialty Papers, Inc. will receive the award.

Deadline for scholarship applications is March 22, 2019. Applications are available at all Berkshire County high school Guidance Departments or can be downloaded here >> 2019 Girls Inc. Scholarship Application
