The Freshman Corner

All mentees both past and present are eligible to apply for our annual scholarship of $1000. New Girl on the Block continues to invest in the well-being of it’s community and will always support its student body during their personal and professional development.

We want you to be able to flourish and our scholarship means you have one less obstacle to stress over. We are looking to reward a woman who embodies passion, self-motivation and ambition. A mentee who never backs down from a challenge, raises her hand even when she’s scared, speaks up about what she believes in and reaches back to help women coming up behind her.
