WCC SCHOLARSHIP:

Each year we award one scholarship to an outstanding student whose application and supporting materials best meet our standards and who exemplifies the traditions of female leadership and service that were important to our club’s founders. The scholarship for 2024 is $2,500 and is awarded in October 2024.  The award includes membership in the Club through the end of 2025.

CLUB HISTORY:

The Woman’s Century Club is a social club focused on women’s history, the arts, education, and community service. Our club provides a place of connection and inspiration for women of all generations and walks of life. We seek to honor the history and traditions of the past while investing in the young women of the future.

The club was founded in Seattle in 1891 by suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt and other female pathbreakers, including Seattle’s first woman superintendent of schools and the first woman to graduate in law from Yale. You can learn more about the club and our history on our website.
