Our Scholarship Program


To help young women attending high school in the Williamsburg area obtain a higher education so that they can take up the mantle as future leaders, The Woman’s Club of Williamsburg-GFWC awards scholarships to female seniors that are graduating from Lafayette High School, Warhill High School, or Jamestown High School (all in Williamsburg-James City County VA) or Bruton High School (in York County VA). Applicants must have been accepted for attendance at an accredited four-year university or college. Awards will be based on high academic standing, demonstrated leadership ability, extracurricular activities, and submitted recommendations and essay.

Applications are posted here and provided to high school counselors annually in early February. The 2020 application is available for download: Woman’s Club Scholarship 2020. Recommendation letters need not be submitted from an official school email address; teachers and guidance counselors can email recommendation letters from their personal accounts if necessary.
