Morgan Babcock Scholarship 2020 Annoucement to High School Seniors

Attention 2020 High School Graduates Residing in Dunstable

 

Congratulations on your pending graduation!

 

We are delighted to announce the availability of the Helene Morgan Babcock and Alfred Babcock Memorial Scholarship, and invite you to apply for these generous funds as you continue your education.

During the winter of 1923, the home of the Morgan family here in town caught fire and was largely destroyed. The citizens of our community responded to the crisis by taking in the children (all 17 of them!), keeping the family together and aiding in the reconstruction of their home.  One of the children, Helene Morgan Babcock, remembered the words of her mother, “Never forget the kindness of the people of Dunstable,” and so established a scholarship fund to be made available to the graduating students of Dunstable as they continue their education.

The amounts of these grants are substantial, with one of the Babcock Scholars receiving $4,000 each year for up to four years.  A number of additional $2,000 scholarships are granted to other students on a one time basis.

Scholarships may be applied to expenses incurred in the pursuit of advanced education beyond the secondary level in two or four year institutions, vocational education institutions, or formalized apprenticeship programs (the main scholarship for 4 year full time only).Starting February 11, 2020, applications will be available at the town hall, library, your school guidance office, or by emailing [email protected] applications can be submitted electronically to the above email, or to the PO Box listed below no later than March 19, 2020. Questions regarding the application process can be sent to [email protected].  We hope you take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
