For additional information on college scholarships, you may want to contact your high school guidance counselor, reach out to the financial-aid office of the school you wish to attend, and/or check the Web sites at right. With some targeted research, you can uncover all sorts of helpful information on securing grants and scholarships. As with any online application, always be careful of the information you share.

The Congressional Award Program
The Congressional Award program, sponsored by the United States Congress, honors youth for setting and accomplishing goals in the areas of voluntary public service, personal development, physical fitness, and expedition/exploration. This award is given to youth ages 14 to 23 who complete a given number of hours across each area. To date, over 7.4 million hours of service have been contributed to communities across the country as a part of the Congressional Award program and there are currently over 45,000 youth enrolled. Hours accumulated through Girl Scout Gold Award projects or other Girl Scout activities can be counted toward a candidate’s goal as long as activities are in compliance with the award program guidelines. (Please note that hours accumulated by Girl Scouts prior to registering for the Congressional Award do not count.)
Youth can earn up to six different honors: Bronze, Silver, and Gold certificates and Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals. Gold medal recipients will be recognized by members of Congress at an event in Washington, DC and are eligible to receive scholarships and other opportunities through schools and universities. All deadlines are rolling; Girl Scouts can start working towards a Congressional Award at any time.
