Cornelia Benton Scholarship
The Cornelia Benton Scholarship was started in 1991 before "Cornie" Benton passed in 2006. The Cornelia Benton Scholarship Committee has continued the scholarship, allowing active, high school senior Girl Scouts to apply for financial aid for their continued education.
Cornelia lived the Girl Scout Promise for 82 years, making her the
oldest Girl Scout in Utah! She joined at age 13, earning 24
proficiency badges and her Golden Eaglet through the age of 18. When
she completed her education, Cornelia became an elementary school
teacher and a teacher for the visually impaired students.
Active Girl Scouts are awarded this prestigious scholarship based on their service to their community, leadership skills, and awards; through Girl Scouts, their community, their church, their school, or any other organization. This scholarship is based solely on service, leadership skills and positions, and awards received.
Please do not disclose information such as GPA, SAT/ACT scores, or other academic record in this application as the committee will not be considering these factors in scoring.
