2019 Sandwich Student Scholarships2019 Sandwich Student Scholarships through Doris L. Benz Trust and the Alfred Quimby Trust are just announced:
SCHOLARSHIPS FOR SANDWICH STUDENTS - 2019
The Alfred Quimby Trust and the Doris L. Benz Trust both provide scholarships to Sandwich residents. These scholarships each have distinct and different criteria and processes.
The Alfred Quimby Trust sponsors scholarships for residents who do not qualify for the Doris L. Benz Trust. This means if the student is a Sandwich resident but did NOT graduate from Interlakes High School or is a graduate student or an adult student, he/she qualifies 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 12th, 5PM EST is the deadline that applies to most students. The Foundation staff review all applications. Students are notified of their status in mid- to late-June.
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 12, 5pm EST. The application is accessed through the Foundation’s website (www.nhcf.org). Unlike the Quimby awards, there is a local scholarship committee which meets to determine awards in late May for entering freshmen and early July for upperclassmen.
