Women’s club accepting scholarship applications
The Warrenton affiliate of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs of N.C. is now accepting applications from high school students for three scholarships and one award, the Sallie Southall Cotten Scholarship, the Mary K. Paul Whitener Piano Scholarship, the Greeson-Johnson Teaching Scholarship and the Lucy Bramlette Patterson Award for Excellence in Creative Writing.
The Sallie Southall Cotten Scholarship is available to current high school seniors planning to attend college in the fall of 2014. Applicants must reside in Warren County. The scholarship is for $6,000 per year for four years, offering a total of $24,000. Applicants for this scholarship will also be considered for the GFWC Warrenton Women’s Club's $500 Spring Scholarship, which will be awarded in May 2014.

The club will select and sponsor one applicant for each of the two scholarships to compete at the GFWC of N.C. district level. Winners at the district level will compete at the state competition at Campbell University in March 2014.
The Greenson-Johnson Teaching Scholarship is open to rising college juniors who have declared a major in education.
