Young Woman of Achievement

Every year the Quincy YWCA awards a $1000 scholarship to a young woman who has demonstrated leadership by being a role model for other girls, maintained academic success, and participated significantly in community service, and is going on to fulfill her academic potential through furthering her education in any accredited college or vocational school. Applications are accepted each fall. Those applying must be between the ages of 17 and 21, submit a letter describing how they meet the criteria for the award, and two letters of reference from school staff members.
