Renewal scholars selected!

This year, $100,000 will be distributed in scholarships to 44 renewal scholars! They are hard-working women who are accomplishing their goals with the help of Jeannette Rankin supporters.

Here’s what they had to say:

“The Jeannette Rankin scholarship is a reminder that I can accomplish what I set out to do, in spite of the obstacles I face while doing so. The scholarship lets me know that someone believes in me, even when I am doubting myself. It is a driving force for me to stay in school and do my best.”

-Molly, Minnesota

 

“Jeannette Rankin signified to me that others had faith in me, and that faith sparked the confidence to pursue my dream of teaching.”

-Kim, Arkansas

 

“Your name is a household word for us and my kids know what you have added to our lives. They have a better understanding of the importance of diligence, striving for excellence, believing in yourself and in someone else.”

-Donna, Alabama

Congratulations to this year’s Jeannette Rankin scholars and thank you to supporters who make these awards possible!
