Anne Scott Fund

Grant opportunities for young women to deliver community projects and take part in international training events.

The Anne Scott Fund provides girls with the opportunity to take part in WAGGGS international events or programmes at a World Centre – an experience of a lifetime for any Girl Guide or Girl Scout!

Learning through non-formal education and taking action in the community has been at the heart of Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting since the Movement started. Named after a former OB-PS President, the Anne Scott Fund gives grants of up to £400 to girls and young women to take part in these international learning opportunities. 

Have a look at the case studies to learn more about some of our young leaders' experiences and how they benefited from the Anne Scott Fund.


"The Anne Scott Fund has helped me to be part of a life changing opportunity. I have been inspired to take on bigger and more challenging roles due to my amazing time in Ghana and this would not have been possible without the help of the Anne Scott fund."
