Featured grant opportunity: Students Stand #withMalala

“There are many problems, but I think there is a solution to all these problems: It’s just one, and it’s education.” — Malala

Educate. Earn the Girl Scouts Global Action Award. Educate yourself and your community about Malala’s work by hosting a screening of He Named Me Malala or a book club discussion of I Am Malala.

Plan. Identify an issue related to girls' access to education, determine its root cause, and decide how you'll address it in a measurable and sustainable way. Submit your grant proposal for $500 in funds toward your Take Action project.

Act. Implement your Take Action project, keeping your project form updated. Tell us about the impact you make on the community and the issue you identified.
