Description

For 20 years now, the National Foundation for Women Legislators and the National Rifle Association have joined forces for the Annual Bill of Rights Essay Scholarship Contest, which provides six female high school juniors or seniors a $3,000 college scholarship, an all-expense-paid trip to NFWL's Annual Conference, and an award that will be presented at the event. To apply for the scholarship, students must write an essay on one of three topics announced each spring, get a letter of recommendation from a currently elected woman (on the state, county, or municipal level), receive a letter of recommendation from a school employee, and submit a resume. The essay topics change each year but always pertain to the constitution. For more information, students should visit https://www.womenlegislators.org/programs/scholarships/.
