Philanthropy - Scholarship



The Alamo Women's Club Scholarship Program was established over 80 years ago and is made possible through annual fundraising efforts by club members, jewelry sales and community donations.

The program's focus is to award needs-based scholarships to single parents currently attending community college, Youth Homes emancipated foster students, and local public high school graduating seniors.  Scholarships of up to $5,000 each will be awarded to the applicants who demonstrate that they are committed to attending college and greatly in need of financial assistance in order to pay college expenses.

The Scholarship Committee contacts select local community colleges, high schools, and organizations in the fall of each year.  For further information and questions, please contact Tess Perko at
