Women’s clubs offer training scholarships

VERMONT — The General Federation of Women’s Clubs of Vermont (GFWC-VT) has announced the availability of scholarships for Vermont women seeking to further their education or training or to upgrade their skills in preparation for advancing in the work place. Applicants must submit a specific plan for their education or training by March 15.
The scholarships range from $500 to $1,500. GFWC-VT has been awarding this financial aid, funded through contributions from the state federated clubs and individuals, for many years.
The scholarship is named for Barbara Jean Barker, late of Poultney, who served as GFWC-VT President from 1992-1994, and who was instrumental in establishing the program. Women receiving the awards over the years have come from a wide range of towns in the state.
Applications for the scholarship can be obtained from Betty Haggerty, 16 Taylor St., Bellows Falls, VT,  05101, [email protected], 802-463-4159. They are also available through federated woman’s clubs in several towns. You may contact Loretta Lee in Orwell at [email protected] or 802-948-2091. The scholarships will be awarded at the state federation’s annual meeting in early May.
