The Freshman Corner

New Girl on the Block is always paying it forward; our seasonal scholarship is now accepting applications for the January 2017 school semester.

We know school can be costly and we want you to be able to flourish by assisting you to have one less obstacle to stress over. We are always looking to award a woman who embodies passion, self-motivation and ambition when it comes to achieving academic success.
