The Junior League of Champaign-Urbana is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
With that in mind, each year we recognize the spirit of voluntarism in Champaign-Urbana high school graduating female students through our scholarship program. A scholarship in the amount of $500 is offered to one female graduating senior from Centennial, Central, Judah Christian, St. Thomas More, University and Urbana high schools who has demonstrated a strong committment to voluntarism.
The Guidance/Student Services offices at each school has an application available. Please submit your completed Volunteer Award application directly to your school guidance councelor, not to Junior League.
