JLR Scholarship:
This is our 6th year distributing scholarship money and we are thrilled to let you know that this scholarship is no longer limited to just Young Women’s Summit graduates! Our annual scholarship is $5,000 and is for ANY young woman in the greater Berks County area who meets the scholarship qualifications. If you know a young lady who exhibits exemplary leadership skills and has graduated or will be graduating this Spring, please share this application with her!

JLR Sustainer Grant:
All grants are awarded during April with payments before May 31st. Preference is given to direct programs that match the JLR focus statement of helping children by creating, improving, and expanding the resources available for their growth, development and overall welfare.
