 Scholarship Opportunities for Girl Scouts

Crutchfield-Healy Scholarship
Crutchfield-Healy Scholarship

The Joseph P. and Lotus Crutchfield-Healy Memorial Scholarship was established in July 1998 by Kathy Healy-Justice and Mike Justice, two long-time Girl Scout volunteers in Susanville. The purpose of the scholarship is to recognize the accomplishments of a GSSN Ambassador Girl Scout earning her Gold Award and to encourage her pursuit of a four-year college or university education. The scholarship is intended to help defray the costs of attending the college or university. For more information and to apply for the Crutchfield-Healy Memorial Scholarship, contact us at

It’s that time of year when most Girl Scout Ambassadors have completed their Highest Awards and are getting ready to head off to college. With that in mind, we’d like to share some links to scholarships that are open to the public and not Girl Scout specific. We believe that Girl Scouts have an edge over the average scholarship applicant and we encourage you to apply.
