Marilyn Foster Scholarship Applications Accepted April 15 through May 15

CJWC logoThe Coronado Junior Woman’s Club is pleased to present the annual Marilyn Foster Scholarship. The award will honor two (2) Coronado High School class of 2020 young women who are interested in establishing a commitment to their community, in the amount of $2,000 each.

The scholarship honors the legacy of the late Mrs. Marilyn Foster, one of Coronado’s beloved philanthropists who was known for her steadfast dedication to serving our community. She was best known for her involvement as a military spouse, an award-winning gardener, and an active member of the CJWC. Foster believed that a community is only as strong as the people who make it.
