Announcing the Jan Rhodes Scholarship

The Jan Rhodes Scholarship is an opportunity for Meta House to recognize one client or graduate each calendar year who has made significant progress toward achieving economic self-sufficiency. Both academic achievements and/or recent employment would make a woman eligible for the Jan Rhodes Scholarship.

Who is eligible to apply? Current clients and women who have graduated within the past two years are eligible to apply. Applicants must currently be enrolled in school, be actively participating in classes to obtain a GED or have accepted a job offer / started a new job within the past three months.

One Jan Rhodes Scholar will be chosen each year. The winner will receive $250 toward qualifying educational expenses (like tuition or books) or in the form of a gift certificate to purchase work attire.

This application is due to Linda Catterson by Friday, March 28, 2014.

The scholarship was created in honor of Jan Rhodes, who dedicated 20 years of her life to volunteering and Board Service on behalf of the women and children served at Meta House.
