Fitchburg Public School Educational Foundation Scholarship Fund Provides $5,350 in Scholarships to Fitchburg High School Graduates

Three Fitchburg High School students received scholarships to continue their education at prestigious schools including Tufts University, Union College, and Williams College.

 

The grants were made possible by an endowed fund established by an anonymous donor to create the Fitchburg Public School Foundation Scholarship Fund. The purpose of the endowment is to provide funds for scholarships, for applicants who are City of Fitchburg residents, and graduates or students of Fitchburg High School or Goodrich Academy, and who are worthy in character, industry, and ability, but in need of financial assistance.

 

Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts (CFNCM) helped set up, and manages the Fitchburg Public School Educational Foundation Scholarship Fund. Awards from the fund have been provided to Fitchburg students since the fund was established in June of 2015, with recipients and award amounts determined by a Scholarship Advisory Committee whose members are appointed by the Superintendent.

 

In appreciation, one of this year’s scholarship recipients sent a note of gratitude in which she wrote, “…I had never even heard of Community Foundation until I opened the envelope on Senior Awards night. You can imagine my surprise when I found a check in the envelope instead of a certificate. Now that I have looked into the (Community) Foundation, I can’t wait for college to start paying off, so I can donate to you and give back to the community.”
