Good news Falmouth students and parents! The Herbert Henry Smythe Scholarship applications have arrived!
Here are some important excerpts from the cover of the application: “The committee typically awards more than thirty scholarships. The application deadline is FRIDAY, June 1, 2018 at 3:00 PM. ( … ) Decisions will be announced by June 30, 2018. (… ) 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, 2018 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. ( …) The committee will continue its practice of limiting scholarships to one per family. If two children from the same family apply, the committee will decide which seems most deserving of the scholarship”
