We have created a Scholarship Fund as part of Friends of Impact100 DC. Each year, we intend to offer a limited number of scholarships depending upon available funds. Our application process is open for this founding year through Labor Day, 2020.
Scholarships are reserved for women who have the energy and interest to be active participants in Impact DC but who currently lack the funds to join. This program helps support our vision of building a diverse community of women from all backgrounds, ages, and walks of life who are committed to making a difference in our Washington, DC metropolitan community. We ask that applicants carefully evaluate their finances and need as well as their ability to play an active role in the Impact DC before applying for an Impact Scholarship.
Applicants must be at least 21 years old; identify as female; and live in Washington, DC; the counties of Montgomery, Prince George’s, Fairfax, and Arlington; or the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax or Falls Church.
Two-year scholarships are available: the scholarship amount for year one is $650 and for year two, $350. Applicants must reapply in the second year; priority will be given to current scholarship recipients.
The application form is available here. Applications will be accepted through August 31st. Applications will be reviewed by an Impact DC Scholarship Committee consisting of three Board members.
Members have the option of paying their donation twice and donate the money to be used for scholarship. Friends of Impact may assign their donation to the scholarship program.
In order to maintain a fair and consistent application review, the Scholarship Committee uses a rubric to score each candidate based on seven key attributes shown in priority order:
Yes. All Scholarship Committee members sign a privacy agreement.
The number of scholarships depend on the yearly size of the scholarship fund.
