Northbrook Woman's Club Scholarships 

The Northbrook Woman's Club Foundation annually grants scholarships to Northbrook residents who are high school seniors or current college students for the purpose of continuing the student's post high school education. These scholarships may be used for college, trade school or professional education expenses. Funding for the scholarships is derived from the activities of the Charitable Ways and Means Committee (such as the Woman's Club Annual Gala).

The scholarships are awarded on the following criteria: 

  • Student’s Academic Progress
  • Financial Need
  • Community Involvement
  • Extracurricular Activities 

The application for this scholarship award must include the following: 

  • Completed Local Scholarship Application
  • Required Essay
  • Copy of High School Transcript
  • Copy of ACT or SAT 



Please be assured that all information included in the application will be kept in the strictest confidence. All applicant names, family names and addresses will be kept anonymous during the review and selection process by the Scholarship Committee. The selected scholarship recipients will be notified by the Northbrook Woman's Club Foundation in late May.
