Scholarships

The Allison Thomas Scholarship
Supported and awarded by Geneva Women's Club

This scholarship is named after a former member who volunteered over 14 years with the Geneva Women's Club. While volunteering time to her community, she struggled through a life-changing event. She chose to return to school to recertify as an Illinois educator. She had to balance working three jobs and raising three boys alone. Life was a struggle. The Geneva Women's Club wants to help women, in similar situations, attain the education they need to succeed.

Our first $1,000 scholarship will be awarded in 2017.
