Working with the Mechanicsburg Senior High guidance counselors, a committee of club members selects the recipient.  The Upper Allen Woman’s Club GFWC also gives eleven $150 awards (one for each subject area).  Department teachers select the recipient.  The scholarship/awards are presented at the May awards evening.

Upper Allen Woman's Club GFWC and the Upper Allen Woman’s Club Foundation jointly present the Mechanicsburg Middle School Award to a female eighth grade student at the end of the first, second, and third marking periods.  The recipient of this award is selected by members of the middle school staff on the basis of her academic achievement, improvement, and participation in extracurricular activities. She receives a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble from the club and a plaque from the foundation.  The winner and her parents are invited to attend the general meeting immediately following the end of the marking period.
