2012 Henry Herbert Smythe Scholarship

The Henry Herbert Smythe applications for $33,600 of scholarship aid from the Henry Herbert Smythe Trust are now available at the Reference Desk as well as at the Falmouth High School Guidance Office, the Falmouth Public Schools Administration Office, and the Falmouth Town Hall reception desk. The committee typically awards more than thirty scholarships.

Applications with supporting documentation must be returned to the Falmouth High School Principal’s office at 874 Gifford St, Falmouth MA by FRIDAY June 1, 2012 at 3:00 PM.  All supporting documents must be submitted by that date in order for the application to be considered. Decisions will be announced by June 30, 2012.

Mr. Smythe’s will stipulates that the money may be used for “boys or girls in Falmouth, Massachusetts.” A maximum age of 24 years as of January 1, 2012 will apply. Only applicants who are themselves voting residents of Falmouth (or whose parents are) are eligible for the grants. Applications cannot be considered from families who have second homes in Falmouth. The trust agreement states that “character be given equal consideration with scholarship,” and evidence of both personal characteristics and school success is asked for on the application forms. Financial need is a secondary factor in determining recipients.

Scholarship recipients do not have to be graduates of Falmouth High School; they may have attended a private or parochial school in another town. Recipients may be pursuing a variety of post-high school educational plans at any accredited college or technical school.

The committee will continue its practice of limiting scholarships to one per family.

Additional information is provided on the cover sheet of the application.
