NJWC Scholarship Fund
The Naples Juniors foremost philanthropic endeavor is our NJWC Scholarship Fund. Each of our annual and ad-hoc fundraisers contribute to The Fund.
Our Committee takes a hands-on roll in delivering the accomplishments of our fundraising efforts as a Club to local high school students who we believe are most deserving based on their academic, extra-curricular, and self-developed accomplishments.
THE NAPLES JUNIORS SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
Award applicants are sincerely evaluated on an individual basis by our NJWC Scholarship Committee from information provided by their Naples Juniors Scholarship Application. The Application includes academically-based questions such as course load, GPA, class rank, as well as extra-curricular activities, participation in philanthropic initiatives, desired career path, family situation, financial needs, etc., as well as a personal essay. Weighted as most character-illuminating, the Personal Essays are what compel most decisions for the Committee.
The NJWC proudly awards three (3) $2,500 scholarships to local graduating high school students to continue their education.

Join the Scholarship Committee
As a member of the Committee, you will share in an experience unlike any other NJWC event. The Scholarship Committee not only has the privilege and responsibility to select the award winners from stacks of dynamic and worthy candidates, but also the honor of personally presenting the awards to the girls, meeting their families, receiving and extending hugs of mutual gratitude, and witnessing first hand why we work as hard as we do for our fundraisers throughout the year. I like to think of the Scholarship Committee as the heart of Naples Junior Woman’s Club …
Scholarship Committee members will meet several times throughout the year to evaluate the candidates and make the difficult decision of deciding who the three winners will be.
