Congratulations to the 2018-2019 Step Ahead Scholarship Recipients!
The Step Ahead Scholarship program is dedicated to recognizing and providing financial support for promising young women from the greater Memphis community who are committed to public service in the areas of academic success and effective, responsible life planning.
SInce its inception in 2014, $1,000,000 has been awarded to outstanding young women in the Memphis community. Multiple scholarships of at least $2,000 have been awarded from a $300,000 fund. Awards are based on strength of application and estimated financial need. Each award is a one-time, annual scholarship—but recipients are encouraged to maintain good academic status and reapply each year as needed.
The program is a collaborative effort of A Step Ahead Foundation and Girls Inc. of Memphis that supports each organization’s commitment to encouraging the educational advancement and leadership development of young women in the greater Memphis area. A third partner, Bank Tennessee, manages the scholarship program.
