Be a GSWNY Girl Scout and Earn a College Scholarship

This is a special benefit for girls and families who participate in our annual Girl Scout Membership Early Renewal Campaign

After their first year of Girl Scouts, members can earn Tuition Reward Points when they renew their Girl Scout membership for the Girl Scout program year. PLEASE NOTE: Girls entering the 12th grade are not eligible for this promotion.

WNY Girl Scout Membership Renewal must take place specifically during our Early Renewal Campaign: April 1 to May 31.

  • Girl Scouts earn 2,500 Points
