Applications for the $5,000 Jacquie Walker Scholarship offered by the Buffalo branch of the American Association of University Women are due by July 15.
The scholarship is open to female residents of the eight counties of Western New York who graduated from a high school in the region.
An applicant must have completed two years of college and be a full-time student in an accredited four-year college or university. The scholarship is merit-based and requires a strong community service commitment.
The award honors the WIVB news anchor who has been a longtime supporter of the branch’s annual book sale that funds this and several other scholarships, educational programs for girls and women and interest-free college loans.
