The Girls Inc. Lucile Miller Wright Scholars Program

This program was created when Lucile Miller Wright, a long-time supporter of Girls Inc. and a pioneer aviator, made a bequest from her estate to fund scholarships expressly for young women members.  The Girls Inc. Lucile Miller Wright Scholars Program is the largest girls-only scholarship in the United States and Canada that allows young women to pursue a college degree of their choice, at an institution of their choice.

“Strong, Smart and Bold” 8th Grade Scholarship

2012 is the first year that this scholarship has been made available. The program is also funded through a generous bequest from Lucile Miller Wright, a visionary and long-time supporter of Girls Inc. and young women.

Eighteen of these $500 scholarships are available to 8th Grade Girls Inc members/participants.  Awards are held in escrow until scholars begin post secondary education.  Full award must be used within two years after high school graduation.
