Town Scholarship Committee

The Town of Holbrook Scholarship Committee began in 1988 as a community-based scholarship fund to offset some of the cost of attending college for Holbrook residents graduating high school.  The committee consists of a minimum of five Holbrook residents who meet several times a year. The fund receives no money in the town budget; it relies on the generosity of local residents and businesses. Funds are solicited from town residents through request letters sent to homeowners in their property tax bills twice a year. The Committee was recently the beneficiary of an endowment that will also be used to fund scholarships. Applications are available at the link on this web-page, and are due back by April 1st. 

Student applicants fill out an application form which includes academic records, SAT scores, GPA, co-curricular activities, community service, employment experience, as well as a personal statement with goals and aspirations.  A letter of support from a school guidance counselor or other responsible adult familiar with the student and his/her overall character is also required.

Since 1988, more than 130 students have received these scholarships, which are publicly awarded at a Select-board meeting in May. No donation is too small, and all monies received go directly to the College/University the students attend to help offset the costs of their higher education.
