2019 Scholarships

The Dedham Junior Women’s Club is pleased to announce that once again we are offering four scholarship awards to Dedham residents. Two awards are available only for high school seniors: the Tory J. Civian Student Volunteer Award for $1500 and the Dedham Jr. Women’s Club Student Volunteer Award for $1000.  Applicants should complete the student scholarship application and are automatically considered for both awards.

The student awards are open to a Dedham resident who is currently  a high school senior and who will be continuing his or her education at an institution of higher learning.

The third scholarship-award is open to a Dedham woman returning to school or continuing her education after college. Named for the late Karen E. Baker, the DJWC’s first president, this $1000 award is designed to support the educational pursuits of a Dedham woman who is an active volunteer. Educational programs such as certification classes and conferences qualify for this award. Click Here for application.

A fourth scholarship award will be given in honor of Erin K. Gorman.  This $1000 scholarship will be awarded to a high school student or adult pursuing a career in nursing.  Applicants who are entering or currently enrolled in a nursing program will be considered for this scholarship.   Click Here for an application.
