Student Scholarship Information

Kitty McGuigan Scholarship Award

In 2000, the membership approved the awarding of an annual $1,000 college scholarship, The Kitty McGuigan Memorial Scholarship, to an active member’s son/daughter.  This year, the award will be granted to a student who will be beginning college in the Fall after the Fall Conference.  A committee has been formed to review applications for the scholarship. Although awards will be made at the Fall Conference, it is not necessary for you to be in attendance to be considered.
