Broad Brook Grange in Guilford
GUILFORD -- Broad Brook Grange in Guilford annually awards a scholarship to a Brattleboro Union High School student from Guilford who has been accepted at a 2-or-4-year college. The student must be a graduate of Guilford Central School.
The scholarship was first given in 1981, and the annual amount had long been $500. Owing to the tremendous increase in college costs, the Grange members raised the amount to $750 two years ago, and have now announced that beginning this spring the scholarship will be maintained at $1,000 annually.
The Grange, which serves as a community center for Guilford, raises funds for this and its other community service programs primarily through such fundraising activities as the annual Sugar on Snow Supper, bingo and food booths at the Guilford Fair, and through its popular brunches, two of which will be held in 2014: on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
The 2014 scholarship application instructions are electronically stored in the BUHS Naviance system and also paper copies are in the scholarship file cabinet located in the Counseling Office.
Applications are due by May 23, and the recipient is announced at the Senior Awards Ceremony the evening before BUHS graduation.
NEWFANE -- The Moore Free Library is offering a total of $12,000 in scholarships, generously funded by the family of the late Robert L. Crowell. These awards are open to students residing in Newfane, Williamsville, South Newfane and Brookline who will be entering their first year of college this fall.
The scholarship committee will consider academics, contributions to the community, and financial need. The number of scholarships awarded and the award amounts will be determined by the applications received. Applications should include a brief autobiography (including plans for continued study and the name of the school to which you have been accepted), high-school transcript, and a letter of reference. Completed applications should be submitted by May 1 to Board of Trustees, Moore Free Library, P.O. Box 208, Newfane, VT 05345.
