keyFrontier Girls offers three annual continuing education scholarship awards for girls ages 16-22 and the deadline for applying for this year is rapidly approaching.   All applications must be received by April 1 and the scholarships are awarded in May.   These scholarships are not traditional college scholarships and can be used for any type of continuing education including college tuition, vocational schools, special classes or seminars, educational equipment (computers, cameras, etc.) or even travel.  Our goal is to encourage girls to continue to learn new things and explore the world around them even if it is not within a traditional school system.
