OSPREY — A total of 16 girls receiving Sarasota County diplomas are receiving $5,000 scholarships from The Oaks Women’s Club based on academic excellence, financial need, extracurricular activities, leadership and community service.

“The recipients were chosen by The OWC Scholarship Committee in March from a pool of 48 applicants: of these, 28 girls were interviewed,” the news release said.

A total of $80,000 is being given out along with $37,000 awarded to second-year scholarship recipients from the class of 2019.
