Applications are now available for the 2013 town of Shrewsbury Scholarships.
These scholarships are awarded to deserving high school seniors who are residents of Shrewsbury. Awards are based on financial need, character, community service and academic achievement. The Scholarship Fund was instituted by Town Meeting vote in May 1995.
In 2012, 21 $500 scholarships were awarded to students who were furthering their education at accredited institutions of higher learning.
Students who are interested in applying for the 2013 scholarship may obtain applications at the Shrewsbury High School guidance office or at the Selectmen’s Office. Applications with fill-in functionality can also be downloaded from the Town of Shrewsbury web site.
Completed applications must be received in the selectmen’s office no later than 4:30 p.m. on March 13, 2013. Information is included on the application.
Since the inception of the Scholarship Fund many Shrewsbury residents have generously supported this worthwhile effort. Contributions can be made along with excise and property tax payments. Direct donations are also accepted at the Treasurer’s Office at any time or on-line on the town website.
The Scholarship Committee wishes to thank all residents who have contributed to this fund and encourages future donations so that more students may continue to fulfill their dream of attending college.
