The Junior League of Miami, Inc. is proud to sponsor The Junior League of Miami Scholarship awarded to three female, high school seniors in the Miami-Dade County Public School System, who have exhibited superior community service involvement during their high school careers, while maintaining high academic achievement. Two of the three scholarships will be awarded in honor of Kathryn Menke Miller and one scholarship will be administered by the Junior League of Miami with funds provided by The Uppaluri Family Foundation.
The Junior League of Miami Scholarship – In Honor of Kathryn Menke Miller
Formerly the Kathryn Menke Miller Community Service Award & Scholarship, the scholarship was established in 1985 and is given in memory of one of our members, Kathryn Menke Miller. Kathryn was the “epitome of a hardworking, caring and loving volunteer.” Her greatest accomplishments were assisting our community’s children and her dedication to our public education system. This scholarship is presented annually to a total of two female high school seniors in the Miami-Dade County Public School System.
The Junior League of Miami Scholarship – Funded by The Uppaluri Family Foundation
This scholarship was established in 2015. Mr. and Mrs. Uppaluri came to the United States individually to further their education. Because of the education they received and their hard work, they were able to succeed in their respective careers and are now in a position to give back to the community that has given them so much. Mr. and Mrs. Uppaluri strongly believe that the opportunity to get a higher education is a privilege and want to give this opportunity to hard working students in the Miami-Dade Public School System. The Uppaluri Family Foundation will provide funds for one Junior League of Miami Scholarship annually, with a possibility to receive further funding for three consecutive years upon reapplication. The funds will be provided in the following manner:
