Annual Jeanne Block Scholarship
The annual Jeanne Block Scholarship of the East End Women's Network, for $1000, will be awarded in August. Block was a founding member of the EEWN in 1982, and the scholarship is set up to recognize the needs of adult women who wish to return to school to further their education which will provide a benefit to women in Eastern Suffolk.
All prospective residents must meet the following requirements: be a resident who works or lives on the East End, demonstrate financial need, communicate clearly the focused goal of the completed education, show how this education will serve East End women, and include an academic record. Applicants may be returning to college, school or have a desire to receive training in order to make a career change.
The scholarship will be awarded to one applicant, and the award will be made in late August. Application letters must be received by July 15 and submitted to Ms. Marietta Seaman, PO Box 752, Quogue, NY 11959.
