Durham Home Inc. Scholarship

Requirements: Female pursuing higher education, character, work ethic, involvement

Sarah Durham, a kind and generous lady, was a prominent resident of Crawfordsville, Indiana. Upon her death in 1937, she bequeathed her beautiful home and established a trust for the purpose of maintaining the home as a ladies residence for independent women. 

Today, Durham Home Inc. operates as a 501(c)3 organization and oversees the home, located at 215 West Main Street in Crawfordsville. To further impact Sarah's mission to embolden women, the Durham Home Inc. board of directors established the Durham Home Inc.
