The Meg Graham Scholarship is open to any high school senior who is a DC resident; attends a public, charter, private, or parochial high school in DC; and is matriculating to an accredited, four-year postsecondary institution in the upcoming fall. Applicants must have an outstanding volunteer service record, be in good academic standing with a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA, and show the promise of continued success. The scholarship award will be paid directly to the recipient's school in four annual equal installments based on the scholarship recipient meeting a minimum GPA of 2.75 or higher as a full-time student at an accredited, four-year, postsecondary institution and continuing to perform sufficient volunteer work.
The Junior League of Washington (JLW) is committed to supporting pathways to opportunities through improved access to education, professional and financial development, and capacity building resources in our community. Our annual Meg Graham Scholarship is an important piece of fulfilling our mission. This volunteer service award was established in 1982 in honor of the late Reverend Margaret M. Graham, a former member of the Junior League of Washington and former President of the Association of Junior Leagues International.
