The Woman’s Club Scholarship Fund
In a tradition inspired almost 100 years ago by founding member and past president Mary Munford, The Woman’s Club supports five women each year in the pursuit of a college education with The Woman’s Club Scholarship Fund. Mary-Cook Branch Munford, well known in Virginia for advocating for women’s education opportunities, lives on through this program. Recipients of scholarships from The Woman’s Club Scholarship Fund are called Mary Munford Scholars.
