Mary Terry Goodwin Kuyk Scholarship

The Mary Terry Goodwin Kuyk Scholarship was established to honor the first president of the Junior League of Roanoke Valley.  Each year, two graduating seniors are awarded up to a $2,000 scholarship from the League.

The Scholarship Committee considers applicants based on the following criteria:

  • Quality of documented volunteer work (as determined by the Scholarship Committee);
  • References from adults associated with the applicant’s volunteer work;
  • Documented Scholastic record;
  • Proper completion and timeliness of application.

Scholarship applications are due in the spring every year.
