ALEXANDRIA, La. (JLA) - The Junior League of Alexandria (JLA) is seeking female high school senior applicants within Rapides Parish who have participated to an exceptional degree in volunteer activities for up to five scholarships of $1,000 each.
JLA’s Scholarships for Seniors is a program to encourage voluntarism within the female teenage population of Rapides Parish. Up to five applicants will be awarded a scholarship based on the number of volunteer hours, as well as the quality of the service performed.
Scholarship applications are available online at JLAlexandria.com/scholarships-for-seniors/. The deadline for scholarship applications is February 28, 2020.
JLA is also seeking non-profit organizational grant applications for up to $2,500 each to be presented to local community organizations that express a need in addressing women’s and children’s issues in our focus area. The Junior League of Alexandria’s community focus area is education and mentorship of safety and life skills for women and children.
The exclusive goal of our grant program is to support other non-profit organizations in the community who are working in the League’s focus area by awarding them direct financial assistance.
JLA has afforded the grant committee the liberty to consider proposals for any legitimate need in addressing women’s and children’s safety and life skills issues. In receiving detailed narratives of other community efforts, the League is better able to keep its finger on the pulse of these issues. Not only interesting and impressive, these proposals also foster networking and informational exchange opportunities that are vital to working efficiently and effectively.
The Grant Committee and the League as a whole look forward to learning about and assisting in many worthwhile efforts to enrich the lives of women and children in our community.
Grant applications are available online at JLAlexandria.com/grants. The deadline for grants applications is February 28, 2020.
