SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS 2023 in Photo: These two young women, one from Concord High School and one from Merrimack Valley High School were honored May 5 during the Woman’s Club Annual meeting. They are truly outstanding young women and we are happy to play a small role in helping them achieve their dreams.
BACKGROUND: The Scholarship Award is central to the Woman’s Club of Concord’s mission to empower women. Scholarships are given to young women who are in their senior year at either Concord High School or Merrimack Valley High School. Particular consideration is given to community service, financial need, interest in women’s issues, and leadership, as well as academic achievement. We have been awarding these scholarships since the 1800s!!
Application and Award
Interested applicants may download the WCCScholarshipApplication from this site. Information can also be obtained from the guidance departments at Concord High School and Merrimack Valley High Schools. Applications are due April 1.
Award recipients are honored at the Woman’s Club Annual Meeting in May. The monetary award is given after successful completion of a first semester of higher education. The awardee is asked to send to the Woman’s Club, a copy of her transcript showing successful completion of the first semester. The monetary award is then sent to her school directly, to be applied to the second-semester tuition.
The Woman’s Club also sends notification of the award to the recipient’s high school and to the Concord Monitor. Recipients are usually also honored at their high school’s senior awards meeting.
The Woman’s Club annual meeting this year with the Award presentations will be in May 2023 at Chamberlin House. All scholarship recipients and their families, and friends are invited to attend to honor the recipients of the 2023 scholarship program.
