Scholarship Opportunity

The Junior League of New Orleans believes that every woman in Metropolitan New Orleans should have the opportunity to live a healthy, happy, and successful life. We are committed to Advancing the Wellbeing of Women through the use of trained volunteers that provide direct service, educate the community, and advocate for issues that affect women.

As such, JLNO launched a Scholarship Opportunity in 2017 to help women obtain degrees or certificates necessary for joining the workforce or for advancement within their careers. The Scholarship Opportunity is geared towards non-traditional* female students looking to begin post-secondary programs or needing the support to help complete the final term of their programs. Helping to alleviate educational financial burden allows JLNO Scholars the opportunity for economic success and independence.
