Celebrating Over 96 Years of Service
The Girls' Service League is a 501(c)3 organization offering college scholarships to women in Johnson, Parker and Tarrant County, Texas. The scholarships range from $500.00 to $1,500.00 for two to four year institutions. At this time we do not fund trade or vocational schools.

The Girls' Service League, Inc. evolved from a committee formed during World War I, called the Girls' Protective League, by sixteen dedicated women lead by John G. Waples, William Bohning, R. E. Buchanan, Warren Collins, Mary A. Drake, C.O. Edwards, Miss Zilla Garrett, D. F. Hornsby, Miss Rose Howard, Chalmers Hutchison, Theodore Mack, C. A. O'Keefe, W. D. Reynolds, William J. Rush, Charles Scheuber, E. L. White, and John W. Wray.
