Scholastic Scholarships

 

Scholarship applications are available Spring 2019

 

The Friends of the Library of Windham (F.L.O.W.) is pleased to announce that it will be awarding four distinct scholarships for a total amount of $8,000; two are for high school seniors working toward a 4 year degree at a college or university, one is for a high school senior going to a community college or trade school, and the final scholarship is for a non-traditional student returning to school after a gap of 5 or more years.

 

The recipients of the F.L.O.W. 2019 Annual Scholarships will be awarded funds to use toward tuition, the purchase of books, and any other supplies needed to further their education. This is a one-time scholarship, not an annual recurring one. Scholars may only receive it once. Scholarship winners will be announced at the Windham High School Scholarship Night (Date TBA).

 

Final scholarship amounts are subject to change
Applications available February 2019

Non-Traditional/Returning to College Scholarship

Non-traditional students fall outside the preconceived norms for college-bound students. General wisdom has it that high school graduates who wish to pursue a college education do so directly after graduation, completing a seamless transition into post-secondary education. But there are many paths to higher education, and they do not all conform to the same map. Many students choose to postpone college or move directly into the workforce bypassing a university education altogether. It is only later that they decide to pursue a higher education, either to improve their professional opportunities or to expand their general knowledge. Still, other students may have had their college careers interrupted, either by growing families or financial difficulties and only later return to complete what they had started. 

 

Award Amount: $1,000
