AAUW-TC Minnie Votruba Moore Scholarship

This scholarship was established January 15, 1975, funded with a bequest to AAUW Traverse City Area Branch by Minnie Votruba Moore, a Branch member. The founding spirit of this scholarship is to recognize and assist women who seek to enrich their educational credentials and thereby enhance their personal and/or career opportunities. In May 2016, the scholarship funds were transferred to the Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation to endow the AAUW-TC Minnie Votruba Moore Scholarship. This scholarship now will be available in perpetuity to women in the five-county Grand Traverse Region.

The 2017 value of this scholarship will be $1,200.00. The scholarship funds will be remitted directly to the educational institution the recipient will be attending.

Zimco LLC Scholarship

The 2017 value of this scholarship is $1,000.00. These funds will be provided directly to the recipient to be used for books, supplies, or tuition as needed.
