Hard work should never go unnoticed.

The YWCA of the Niagara Frontier is proud to offer scholarship programs through the Munk/Human Scholarship. This scholarship will be offered to women returning to secondary education in 2019.


To be eligible, potential recipients must meet the following criteria:
  • Potential recipients must be non-traditional female students pursuing a higher education, with ties to Niagara County. The Committee will use the National Center for Educational Statistics’ definition of a non-traditional student (including but not limited to full or part-time students).
  • Students pursuing any higher education following high school or achievement of a HSE/GED will be considered for award. This includes, but is not limited to, students pursuing an undergraduate, graduate, or associate’s degree, as well as accreditation and certification programs.
  • Students residing in Niagara County or who have used the services of the YWCA of the Niagara Frontier will be given preference.
    Interested applicants are encouraged to complete an application and mail, email, or fax to the YWCA of the Niagara Frontier.
