Tuesday Afternoon Club Scholarship
The Tuesday Afternoon Club (TAC) began over 100 years ago with 8 Glendale women who played bridge every Tuesday. The TAC women founded the Glendale Library in 1907 which housed approximately 100 books in a rented poolroom. Upon the dissolution of the Club in 1999, the Board members chose to place remaining assets in a fund with the Community Foundation. In fact, the TAC was among the community groups responsible for the creation of the Community Foundation of the Verdugos (then known as the Glendale Community Foundation) in 1956. The collaboration between the Club and the Foundation has enjoyed a long history and in addition, has provided scholarships to graduating Glendale Unified School District students. Financial need must be demonstrated (a FAFSA/SAR report is required to be considered for this scholarship.), along with proof of U.S. Citizenship and community service. The student should be able to show a potential for achievement, success, and self-motivation.
