Our Scholarship Experience
At Marias Closet, we want to encourage and empower the young girls in our community to further their education. Every year for our Marias Girls Scholarship, we take the donation money that we have left over after the prom season ends and we gift it to a small group of our giveaway winners to use towards their college journey.

Why should you be selected to be a Marias Girl Scholarship recipient
You will not be able to save progress on your application, so before you start, make sure you have enough time to complete the whole process. The whole form not including the essay portion takes about 10 -15 minutes to complete. We suggest that, if you do not have time to write the full essay in one sitting, you write it in another location (like Google Docs, Microsoft Word, or even your notes app) and copy/paste it when you fill out this form.
We recommend you fill out this application on a computer rather than a phone or tablet.
