Go Grants for Girls Being Accepted for Summer 2021 Activities
Connecting Women in Business Accepting Applications for Summer GO Grants
Connecting Women in Business (CWIB), a Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce group, announces the launch of its Summer 2021 series GO Grants for Girls. Applications must be submitted by March 19, 2021.
GO Grants (Girls Outreach Grants) range up to $500 for girls in grades 5 to 10 in the Char-Em ISD service area of Charlevoix, Emmet and northern Antrim counties. These grants allow the applicant to pursue a special interest gain or improve a skill, participate in an outdoor experience and more. We encourage applications that will be challenging to the applicant.
The ideal applicants are girls who have not received awards for outstanding achievements. CWIB is seeking girls who do not ordinarily apply for awards. We are looking for under-represented girls who need more support to realize their potential. Girls need to clearly state their financial need, as well as describe a special interest that will spark their imagination, creativity, or follow a dream that they may not imagine possible.
Girls will be required to work with an adult mentor – a relative outside of the immediate family, teacher, youth pastor, social worker, etc. – who will help them fill out and submit the application, and will work with the girl to help her achieve her dream. The mentor will also work with each girl to submit a one to two-minute video about her completed activity and what it meant to her or the recipient will provide a written report.
