SCHOLARSHIPS & AWARDS

As part of our mission at The Indigo Girls Group we aim to empower young women in a variety of ways, including providing opportunities to celebrate young women who are agents of change within their communities. We also believe that this ability can be fostered and encouraged in girls from a young age. We plan to offer a variety of scholarships, awards and project funds for girls and women involved with the Indigo Girls community.
