Awards, Grants, & Scholarships


Leslie Pope -

For questions about this year's applications, please contact:
Jennifer Abel - or Jenny Umbarger - 

An important note regarding Awards, Grants, and Scholarship Deadlines:

Our former Awards, Grants, and Scholarships Director, Robin Rhodes, had to step down from her position a couple of months ago, shortly after the application window opened. While we tried our best to fill her shoes, we realized this weekend we missed some of the e-mails that came in regarding the applications. Because we didn’t want anyone to miss the application deadlines due to our delay in responding, we are extending the deadlines as follows:

We do have access to the former director’s account, so please know that we have received emails regarding this year’s applications and we will be following up with you this weekend. If you have any questions about this year’s application process, please feel free to reach out to me.

Jennifer Abel, President
