The Running Goddess Scholarships

The Running Goddess Scholarship
Every girl has the ability to achieve their goals and The Running Goddess Scholarship Fund will be used to support this cause.

The fields of math, science and technology play an important role in the betterment of society as a whole. Although women currently comprise 50% of graduating classes in the medical field, the areas of science, technology, engineering and math are still low.  Through our Scholarship Fund, we hope to alleviate this imbalance one girl at a time. Graduating female seniors from Westchester and Putnam counties are invited to apply for this scholarship.

Application Requirements are as follows:

  • You must be a female high school senior with an interest in majoring in math, science and/or technology.
  • Two letters of recommendation from a teacher and coach.
  • History of consistent team sport participation: for example – track, cross-country, soccer, lacrosse.
  • College acceptance letter
  • An essay (approximately 300 words) about how the combination of health and education for women improves society and the world and how you will make a difference.
