Application forms are now available for the Richmond Scholarships.
Applicants must be year-round residents of Richmond and either graduating seniors or present college students. The awards may be used for education or training at a four- or two-year college, graduate school, vocational school, technical school, or any other full-time educational program that the scholarship committee deems appropriate.
Significant consideration is given to academic achievement and community contributions. Past recipients may apply.
The application forms are available at the Richmond Post Office, high school guidance offices, Richmond Free Public Library, Bartlett’s Orchard, or from Patricia Malnati of State Road.
Completion of one form covers all six funds and the deadline for submission to Malnati is May 1.
Traditionally, nine or 10 scholarships are given from the various funds which are named for the Richmond residents they honor: The Anita Chapman Scholarship; The Mildred Wheeler Memorial Scholarship; The Sarah MacDonald Scholarship; The William A. and Hazel B. Dickson Scholarship; The Richmond Volunteer Fire Department/Malnati Family Scholarship; and The Joyce C. Spence Award.
Donations to any of these funds are welcome at any time and may be sent to Ruth Bass, chairman of the Chapman committee, or to Elizabeth Gniadek, treasurer of the Chapman, Dickson, and Spence funds.
For the Wheeler and MacDonald funds, checks should be sent to the Richmond Town Treasurer.
