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.”
“Jeannette Rankin signified to me that others had faith in me, and that faith sparked the confidence to pursue my dream of teaching.”
“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.”
Congratulations to this year’s Jeannette Rankin scholars and thank you to supporters who make these awards possible!
