If you are a high-achieving young woman looking for a living and learning community where you can develop your full potential, The Sunflower Initiative can help you make a choice that’s right for you. Our renewable annual scholarship can be applied at a women’s college that you choose to attend. In addition to our financial support, you will join a network of accomplished women who are passionate about your future success. The Harriet Fitzgerald Scholarship will be awarded to a woman who will begin attending an undergraduate women’s college in the United States or Canada.
The Scholarship Committee welcomes applications from highly motivated women who are passionate about learning and desire to attend a women’s college in the United States. The successful candidate must: possess a stellar high school record (with a 3.7 GPA, and either an SAT of 1350 or an ACT of 27); provide outstanding references; have a sincere desire to make a contribution to society; and demonstrate strong character and leadership qualities, as well as breadth and depth of interests. Applicants can either be: high school seniors; high school graduates who have taken a gap year since graduating from high school; women who matriculated at college but left prior to the completion of their first semester and now plan to start college again; or dual enrollment candidates who have taken some college courses early while completing high school.
