SCHOLARSHIPS FOR SANDWICH STUDENTS - 2017

 

The Alfred Quimby Trust, Doris L. Benz Trust and Skrungloo Farm all provide scholarships to Sandwich residents.  These scholarships do not overlap and serve different students.  Each has a distinct and different processes.

 

The Alfred Quimby Trust sponsors scholarships for residents who do not qualify for the Doris L. Benz Trust.  This means if you are a Sandwich resident but did NOT graduate from Interlakes High School or you are a graduate student or an adult student, you may qualify for the Quimby scholarship.

 

The Alfred Quimby Trust scholarships are managed through the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.  Applicants must fill out the online application form (there may be different deadlines depending on whether the applicant is going to a 2- or 4-year college or if the student is an independent adult).    Instructions may be found on the Foundation’s website (www.nhcf.org).  April 14 is the deadline that applies to most students.

 

The Doris L. Benz Trust will consider scholarship awards to Sandwich residents who meet ALL of the following criteria:

 

(1)  resident of Sandwich;

(2)  graduated from Interlakes High School; and

(3)  enrolling in an accredited undergraduate post-secondary education or training program.

 

Graduate and adult students or traditional students who did not graduate from Interlakes High School are not eligible for funding from the Doris L. Benz Trust. 

 

The Benz Trust also uses the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to help administer its award.  Students must fill out the online application by April 14.  Unlike the Quimby awards, there is a local Committee which meets to determine awards in late May and early July.
