The Junior League of Kingston awards three scholarships each year to local women. Each winner receives $1,000 toward their college tuition for the upcoming school year. A special committee appointed by the Junior League of Kingston will select the recipients. There are different criteria for high school seniors and for non-traditional students.
The Florence Cordts Scholarship for High School Seniors:
The Junior League of Kingston is now accepting applications from female college bound high school seniors in Ulster County or the Junior League of Kingston’s surrounding service area who demonstrate a strong commitment to volunteering and plan to further their education. The recipient must show contributions to her community through volunteer service.
The Reach Your Potential Scholarship for Non-Traditional Students:
The Junior League of Kingston is also accepting applications from women 25 years of age or more living in Ulster County or Junior League of Kingston’s surrounding service area, who are returning to or beginning college as a full time student. The recipient must be enrolled in or accepted to an Associates or Bachelor degree program and demonstrate plans and a strong commitment to further her education and develop her potential.
