The Nu Alpha Gamma chapter of Dallas County, an affiliate of the Delta Kappa Gamma International Society of Professional Women Educators, is offering two $500 scholarships to students who will be college juniors or seniors this fall, majoring in education. The applicants must have graduated from any of the high schools in Dallas County and can be male or female.

Award winners will be named in early August. The ending date for application is July 31, 2017.

Our group of dedicated educators annually conducts a Grant-in-Aid Silent Auction among the members prior to the holidays to be able to offer these scholarhips.

Additional information for qualified applicants can be obtained from Maureen Becker, 17473 J Avenue, Perry, Iowa, 50220 or mrgebecker@gmail.com.
