Adventurers Scholarship
Through the generosity of donors, a scholarship fund has been established in honor of our group’s founder, Barbara Duerk, to help girls participate in Adventurers activities. Requests may not be more than $100/year, and each application will be considered on a case by case basis. Details, criteria and application for this scholarship fund can be found here. Please submit scholarship applications one week before the program's registration close date. Have questions? Reach out to this program's coordinator listed here or directly to The Adventurers:
