Senior year excitement has begun for a new group of students as they prepare for the next phase of their lives. Very soon spring will come again and graduation will be here. It is not too early to start thinking about scholarships. As the price for post-secondary education rises, so does the need for financial assistance.
The Scholarship Fund was established as an independent entity in 1966 by five Concord-Carlisle Regional School Committee members. Since its inception, the Fund has supported over 600 students in higher education, many for four years, who have attended school in Concord or reside in Concord or Carlisle. In 2004, the total awards to both graduating senior, college, and graduate students amounted to slightly over $125,000.The present Trustees, all residents of Concord and Carlisle, raise money, supervise its investment, interview and select the students to receive scholarships each spring, and administer scholarships for several other local organizations. The Fund is associated with Dollars for Scholars, a national scholarship organization which serves as a valuable resource. The Trustees also assist donors wishing to honor a special citizen, teacher, or loved one by establishing a named fund.
A wordfor parents - do plan on an early as possible tax return in the new year to make financial aid form deadlines. We encourage you to visit our web site at www.ccscholarshipfund.org where you can not only find more information about the Fund, but can also find the 2005-06 scholarship application form which is now ready to be downloaded.
