Girl Scouts are nationally and internationally recognized as the leaders of tomorrow’s world. Being a Girl Scout sets you apart—and you need to make it known! See below to find different scholarships and recognitions that you may be eligible for as a Girl Scout.

*Note: Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award automatically sets you even further apart—nationally, only 5 to 6 percent of all Girl Scouts earn their Gold Award. Many colleges, employers, and funders value the passion and dedication that it takes to earn a Gold Award—did you know that Gold Award recipients who join the armed services enter at one rank higher than other recruits? On top of that, University research indicates that adding Gold Award to a college application is a critical element in the admissions-decision process.
