The Scholarship Fund, Inc. was established in 1983, when the Great Falls Women’s Club recognized the need to provide financial assistance to women pursuing degrees in higher education.

  • The GFFN Scholarship Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization, served by a seven member Board of Directors.

  • Scholarships are awarded to deserving women over the age of 25 who are residents of Northern Virginia, attending George Mason University or Northern Virginia Community College. 

  • In 2016, the GFFN Scholarship Fund, Inc. board established two $25,000 endowments. One each at George Mason University and Northern Virginia Community College.  These endowments ensure perpetuity of donated monies.

  • The Scholarship Fund Board develops fundraising activities supported by GFFN members and the Great Falls Community.  These fundraising activities are determined by scholarship needs.

  • Donations are always welcome by visiting the GFFN Scholarship Fund website at:

  • In the 2017-2018 academic year, the GFFN Scholarship Fund, Inc., awarded 7 scholarships for a total of $8,500.

  • In the 2018-2019 academic year, the plan is to award a total of 10 scholarships of $1,500 and 2 scholarships of $1,000 from the endowments established in 2016.

  • Several of our past scholarship recipients have full or part time jobs, children and family obligations. They would not have been able to continue their educational pursuits without GFFN Scholarship Fund financial assistance.

  • By promoting higher education in these women, with our financial support, we are helping them reach their full potential and significantly improve the quality of their lives and that of our community.
