The Women Run Rockland Scholarship Fund was created to encourage young women to enter politics and/or public service in order to further gender equity in elected office and a more representative government.  A scholarship will be awarded to a Nyack High School senior pursuing a degree in a two- or four-year college who has demonstrated a strong interest, level of achievement, and/or involvement in political science, civics or government. Applicants must be young women or identify as young women and submit either a 250-500 word essay or a video describing their plans to better our world through political work (i.e. for a candidate, issue or organization) and/or elected office.
