Ambassador Girl Scout receives Future Leaders Scholarship

LISBON FALLS, ME — Vivian Dudar, a graduating Ambassador Girl Scout from Lisbon Falls, has received a Bronze Level Girl Scouts of Maine (GSME) Joanne Crepeau Future Leaders Scholarship award for her exemplary efforts within the organization and demonstrated leadership skills.

Established in 2018, the Joanne Crepeau Future Leaders Scholarship has awarded $116,000 to 71 Girl Scouts in Maine, to date. Scholarship recipients were chosen based on their answers to three questions during the application process:

· How has Girl Scouts made a difference in your life?

· What do you see as the biggest challenge facing girls and women today?

· In 5 years, how do you see yourself addressing this challenge?

“Girl Scouts has provided me with numerous opportunities to develop my leadership skills by leading projects, organizing events, and mentoring younger Girl Scouts,” says Dudar.

A major issue facing women and girls today according to Dudar, is affordable access to menstrual care supplies. She hopes to combat this challenge by informing herself through seminars and research before spreading awareness. Dudar plans to attend Worcester Polytechnic Institute in the fall to study Management Engineering.

“It fills us with pride to extend scholarships to nine remarkable Girl Scouts this year, embodying our ethos of nurturing leadership. We firmly believe that these girls will emerge as catalysts for change, champions of causes, visionaries, and trailblazers, poised to enhance our collective world,” says GSME CEO, Mara Robinov-Moorhead.

Scholarships were recognized among other awards at this year’s GSME Annual Celebration on May 11, in Fairfield. To learn more about the Joanne Crepeau Future Leaders Scholarship, visit
