More About Girls Career Institute:

Girls' Career Institute (GCI) offers a "mini college experience" at Douglass Residential College on the campus of Rutgers University. Delegates experience a sample of college life by living in a dorm, eating in a cafeteria, and attending lectures and workshops. They learn about career choices from volunteer professional speakers and how to network with other delegates from all over the state of New Jersey. Many establish lasting friendships with one another.

The cost of attending GCI is underwritten by a local NJSFWC club (Hopatcong Woman’s Club) as the sponsor.  Delegates are selected based on their interest in gaining insight into attending college and seeking career options. 

While community service and participation in school activities are strongly considered, GCI is not an award for service or scholarship. Local clubs may contact applicants of their own choosing or contact area schools to ask them to submit the names of students for consideration. If working with a school submission of applicants, the club may be involved in the selection of the Delegate and the Alternate by interviewing those applicants or they may leave the selection to the school personnel.  In every case the Registration Form for Delegates and Alternates must be sent to the Director by March 1, 2020.
