Junior Club of Walla Walla will award two $2,000 scholarships to local women — one to a student enrolled in a local nursing-degree program and one to a student pursuing any college-level field of study.
The funds are for tuition only and are paid directly to the recipient’s educational institution.
Applicants must be female, 24 years or older and residents of Walla Walla County or the city of Milton-Freewater for at least two years.
Applications must be postmarked no later than March 31. Scholarship recipients will be notified on or before April 30.
In addition to providing scholarships, Junior Club also serves the needs of several local nonprofit organizations including Blue Mountain Action Council, Books for Babes, Community Hospice of Walla Walla, Herring House and Providence St. Mary Foundation.
The club supports its financial giving through events such as a Holiday Home Tour, which will celebrate its third year this year.
