Molly Efron Scholarship

This scholarship fund was created in memory of Molly Efron, an early member of the Alliance and a role model for technical women at Xerox. Ms. Efron pioneered a Xerox job-sharing program to stay home with her first daughter, Eve. We are pleased to announce that there will be two $1000 scholarships available for 2021.  Application deadline along with all supporting documentation is due no later than April 10, 2021. The scholarship is open to  Monroe County high school Seniors who are enrolled in a STEM major at an accredited college in Fall 2021.

Please find the application at the attached link: 2021 Molly Efron Scholarship Form – Google Forms
