The Woman’s Association of Georgetown College is currently accepting applications for the 2009-2010 scholarships awarded by the Woman’s Association of Georgetown College. The Woman’s Association of Georgetown College scholarship is the umbrella for the Virginia Mills Dempsey, Katherine Waller Fields, Mary Thompson Porter and Gladys Gwynne Peters funded scholarships and for the Wilma Reed Scholarship endowed at Georgetown College.

Outstanding women leaders interested in attending Georgetown College fall 2009 are eligible to apply. Selection is based on financial need, academic standing, and recommendations from the applicant’s minister and a high school official. In addition, the Wilma Reed Scholarship gives priority to women entering the health professions. The deadline for consideration is May 8, 2009.

Applications for the scholarships awarded by the Woman’s Association of Georgetown College, in the amount of $1,000, may be obtained by contacting the Georgetown College Office of Financial Planning at 502-863-8027, or through the College Website.

Organized in 1897, the Woman’s Association of Georgetown College has been awarding monetary support annually to women aspiring to receive their bachelors degrees from Georgetown College. Three current students are expected to have their scholarships renewed for 2009-2010: rising sophomores Rachel Ward and Lauren Bergman of Georgetown, and Kristen Snyder of Lexington.
