The Allison Thomas Scholarship

Supported and Awarded by Geneva Women’s Club

The Allison Thomas Scholarship awarded by the Geneva Women’s Club is named after a former member who volunteered over 14 years with the Geneva Women’s Club. While volunteering her 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. 

Now, it’s the honor of the Geneva Women’s Club to help women in similar situations attain the education they need to succeed.

A $1,000 Scholarship will be awarded annually
