The $7,000 Linly Heflin Scholarship, accredited to women only, offered by the Linly Heflin Committee receives applications in the fall each year from Alabama women seeking help with their undergraduate degree at 4-year accredited Alabama colleges and universities.
Institutions where will carry out the studies:
Alabama females that are attending an Alabama college or university.
Who can participate?:
The Linly Heflin Unit was founded in 1919 as a women’s service organization. Since 1923 the major focus of the group has been to further the education of young women in Alabama. The Linly Heflin Unit is small in number- only 125 women- but each is dedicated to sharing her time and abilities. Through the years, over 3,000 four-year scholarships have been awarded to Alabama girls attending Alabama colleges and universities.
Levels and areas of study:
Any level of study as long as it equals to a 4-year degree.
Instructions to apply:
We seek bright, motivated young women in order to give them the means to pursue their goals. A vital part of the Linly Heflin Unit is our Scholarship Committee, which has the responsibility of interviewing and selecting the new recipients for scholarships. Each year, hundreds of applications are received, and a select number of candidates are interviewed in the spring. From this group, our scholarship recipients are chosen. Criteria for selection include high G.P.A.s, good ACT or SAT scores, extracurricular activities, proof of the need for financial help, recommendation letters, and essays submitted by the applicants.
