The Margaret Yardley Fellowship Fund was established in 1930 to provide fellowship grants to deserving women who are New Jersey residents pursuing post-graduate advanced studies at the school of their choice. The first contribution to the fund in 1930 was $5,000 given by Farnham Yardley in memory of his mother, the first NJSFWC President Margaret Yardley. NJSFWC has been able to award between six and eight $1,000 fellowship grants to deserving women annually. Information (including application forms) regarding this fellowship fund is forwarded to all New Jersey universities, state colleges and independent four-year colleges plus graduate departments at Harvard University and New York University.
Considerations used when judging applicants qualifications include scholastic achievement, career service potential and charitable endeavors. The grant is applied solely to tuition expenses. If you know of a young woman who is eligible for this grant, applications are available.
