Titus 236 Scholarship Competition

Titus 235 Scholarship Competition

Atlanta GLOW is excited to announce our first ever scholarship competition, the Titus 235 Scholarship, which we are offering in concert with our summer Leadership Incubator Program! In the broader biblical context of the book of Titus, chapter 2 and verses 3-5, Paul describes to Titus that teaching and training young women is primarily the responsibility of older women. Young women need older women to come alongside them, give them help and support, and, in the minutiae of life, offer words of wisdom and a godly example of how to lead and serve in their lives and the community.

Through our mentoring program, this has been one of Atlanta GLOW’s roles since inception, and this scholarship opportunity will further build upon our organization’s efforts to inspire women and girls to make an impact in their communities and help create positive change through education, service, and mentorship.

​Thus, Atlanta GLOW will award one applicant with a $1,000 scholarship to aid with her college journey, made payable to her school of choice. Additionally, two applicants will be chosen to each receive a $125 stipend to furnish their college dorm room with college supplies and/or décor.

Eligible applicants must apply online and submit the required materials, by Friday, April 28, 2017. If selected as a semi-finalist, applicants will be notified by Monday, May 29, 2017 that they have been advanced to the second round, which includes a service project presentation and required participation in our Leadership Incubator Program. Scholarships will be awarded to the chosen finalists during the Leadership Incubator Program on Saturday, July 8, 2017.

Please download our 2017 Titus 235 Scholarship Application Package to learn more about eligibility, the required service hours and essay, and submission instructions.

Looking to donate to our Scholarship Fund? Visit our Donate page, and select “Titus 235 Scholarship Fund from the Purpose dropdown.
