— from Nancy DeVaux for Soroptimists of Friday Harbor —
The Soroptimists of Friday Harbor are currently accepting applications for their “Educational Opportunity” and “Fellowship” awards. Eligible women who are residents of San Juan County are encouraged to apply.
The $2,000 Educational Opportunity Award is for a woman in financial need, who is enrolled or accepted into an undergraduate degree or vocational skills program. The $3,000 Fellowship Award is for a woman who has been established in business or in another profession, and who is now returning to college or university to earn an advanced degree.
For details and information on how to apply, visit the Soroptimist website at www.sifri.org. Applications must be postmarked by January 12, 2018. To help fund these and other educational awards, the Soroptimists will be selling raffle tickets for cash prizes at Friday Harbor Marketplace on December 9 and December 16. Support the Soroptimists; support women and girls.
