The Mary C. Holdsworth Scholarship Fund of the International Order of Rainbow for Girls awards scholarships on an annual basis to deserving active and majority rainbow girls. The fund started in 1990, honouring our first Supreme Inspector, Mrs. Holdsworth.  At that time two scholarships were awarded at $75.00 each. Now, 25 years later, a total of 175 scholarships have been given totalling over $75,000.

To qualify for a scholarship you must be an active or majority Rainbow girl in Canada, in good standing and attending post-secondary education. The criteria for being awarded a scholarship is based primarily on the applicant’s involvement in their assembly, school and community, together with academic achievements. Applicants may apply each year that they attend college/university.

Forms are available each year in February from any Mother Advisor or the Chairperson of the Scholarship committee.
