The Zonta Club of the Santa Clarita Valley is now accepting applications for the Virginia Wrage Memorial Fund Scholarship.
The scholarship is for women over the age of 40 and aims to assist those going through unexpected challenges.
The deadline to apply is March 30, 2016 and the awards will be distributed in May. You can go to the application website [here].
Virginia Wrage was a dedicated Zontonian, mother and grandmother who, at age 50, faced a family crisis that changed her life. She helped plan this fund before her death in 1995.
Since the fund was started it has assisted over 35 women with awards ranging from $500 to $2,000, according to the application website.
Some of the women who are honored are going back to school to support themselves and their children, some are victims of domestic violence, some are single mothers and some are on the verge of homelessness.
All of the grants are funded through the Zonta Foundation of the Santa Clarita Valley.
