Kids Who Care Scholarship

Kids Who Care is a program designed to salute high school seniors who have made a positive difference in the lives of others by volunteering. The selected candidates receive a portion of the $10,000 available in a denomination of $1,000 – $3,000. These will be awarded to local seniors from the Savannah and Low Country area in recognition of their outstanding volunteer service to their community. These scholarships are not based on academic or athletic ability.

The Junior League of Savannah would like you to help us identify Kids Who Care by nominating high school seniors who have been active volunteers. Nominations may be made by anyone:  principals, counselors, students, community groups and individuals, as well as self-nomination by the student.

  • The application deadline is Friday, February 28th, 2020.
  • Interviews of the finalists will be conducted on Monday, March 23rd & Tuesday, March 24th.
  • Awards will be presented at the Junior League of Savannah General Membership Meeting on Monday, May 4th.
  • All applicants will be notified in writing of the selection committee’s decision.
