It’s scholarship season at Cheshire High School, which means that members of the Class of 2014 are eligible for thousands of dollars in assistance for college. The Cheshire Education Foundation administers eight scholarships with a total value of $20,500 that will be available to graduating seniors.
The scholarships administered by the Cheshire Education Foundation are the:
Chapman School Scholarship
John E. DeLane Memorial Scholarship
Mark S. Jardim Memorial Scholarship
Lombardo Family Scholarship
Daniel P. Martinook Memorial Scholarship
Greg Schena Memorial Scholarship
Meghan Welch Memorial Artistic Scholarship
Cheshire Education Foundation General Scholarship
CEF chair Jane Leukart urges all Cheshire High seniors to review the options that are compiled into the Local Scholarship Booklet by the guidance department, and then apply. The booklet, which contains 73 different scholarship opportunities, will be distributed Thursday February 13. When the application process ends in March, the foundation will set up eight scholarship evaluation committees to consider the qualifications of each student according to the specifications established for each of the award programs. The total amount to be awarded this year is $20,500.
The CEF Scholarship chair, Dr. Barry Feldman said, “The foundation is deeply grateful for all the generous contributors who have made it possible for us to provide these awards each year to Cheshire High seniors as they continue their educations. These include the families and organizations for which each scholarship is named along with the Balso Foundation and the friends of Jane Calabro.”
“We’re proud to be part of these eight special programs that generously provide help to graduating seniors in Cheshire,” added CEF chair Jane Leukart. The scholarship winners will be announced at the annual Cheshire High School Awards Convocation in May.
The Cheshire Education Foundation has been raising private funds to enhance the programs and offerings of the Cheshire Public Schools since 1995.
