Are you a member of the Republican party? Are you an undergraduate female student majoring in political science, government or economics? If so, you are in the target pool for the NFRW Betty Rendel Scholarship, provided by the National Federation of Republican Women. This scholarship award was established in 1995 in honor of Betty Rendel, former president of the NFRW.
Three awards are given out each year to qualifying students, each worth $1,000. To apply, you must be an undergraduate student. Though the award was created to honor Betty Rendel in part for her leadership in her home state of Indiana, you do not need to be an Indiana student in order to apply. You can apply from any state in the nation and be selected to win. You need to be in either your junior or senior year, and you can only win this award once. To apply, send in the official application form along with three letters of recommendation and a recent college transcript. Also include a one page essay explaining why you deserve this scholarship. You will need to obtain a State Federation President Certification. If you have any questions, you can contact the NFRW directly. Apply by June 1.
