Money for women returning to college

Shelton’s Chapter B of the Philanthropic Education Organization is offering three $1,000 scholarships to women who have returned to college to continue or finish their education.

The Mary M. Knight Achievement Award honors the Mason County pioneer educator who was a member of Chapter B. The award has supported women’s education in Mason County since 1936.

To qualify, a student must have graduated from high school or earned a GED; be a Mason County resident; plan to obtain a degree or certification; and be enrolled in the 2023-24 academic year in an accredited academic or technical college.

The scholarship is intended to defray costs related to education, and must be used for tuition, fees, books or other related expenses. The award will be sent directly to the college.

Email [email protected] for an application. Include in the request your name, city of residence, college and the date of the start of your term.
