The Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) offers two different scholarship programs. Both programs are offered to the women of Fort Bend County, and were designed to help individuals achieve their educational goals. One program focuses on the young woman embarking on her educational career following high school, while the other is intended for a woman seeking to further her skills or education.
The FBJSL Volunteer Scholarship – The FBJSL Volunteer Scholarship applicant must be an outstanding Fort Bend female high school senior who has completed at least 100 hours of high school community service, has a minimum GPA of 2.5 and desires to pursue higher education in the 2013-2014 school year.
The FBJSL New Beginnings Scholarship – The FBJSL New Beginnings Scholarship applicant must be a Fort Bend woman who has a specific degree or career advancement goal in mind and who has had a break in her education following high school graduation, completion of her GED, or last full-time semester at an accredited college, vocational school or university.
Two Volunteer Scholarships will be awarded at a value of $1,000 each, and one New Beginnings Scholarship will be awarded at a value of $2,000. If you, or someone you know, feel like a qualified applicant please visit the FBJSL’s website at www.fbjsl.com.
