The Altrusa International Club of Oak Ridge is a civic organization of professional women involved in community service and literacy. Altrusans seek to encourage and support women in our community who are striving to complete their education, to search for jobs, and to become financially independent. As part of this interest, Altrusa is offering scholarships of up to $1,000 to deserving women who have returned to college or other schools, or who are beginning their education.
One of the scholarships is named in honor of the late Sarah Ketron, Altrusa president in 1973-74. She was, for many years, a school counselor in Oak Ridge, as well as a community leader and volunteer. The Sarah Ketron Scholarship is intended for women who have interrupted their studies for work, family obligations, etc., and are returning to school to complete their education. The other scholarship is open to all women who are continuing their education, post-high school.
