|Mt. Washington Bank Scholarship Applications Available
“We are pleased to announce that applications are now available for the Mt. Washington Bank Scholarship program begun in 1993,” states Edward J, Merritt, President and CEO of Mt. Washington Bank.
“This year we have made two modifications to the program. The first is an earlier reply date of May 15, 2006. The second is an expansion of the eligibility to participate.
Students who reside in South Boston or Dorchester are eligible, as are those who attend a school in either South Boston or Dorchester,” he added.
Established on the occasion of the bank’s 100th anniversary in 1993, the program has awarded over $ 60,000 since then.
Funds are to be used by selected applicants who will either be attending a tuition high school or college/university in September 2006.
Applications are available at each office of the bank, several community agencies and at schools which have had applicants in prior years.
The application form spells out the subject material for the two essays of one page each, as well as supporting documents.
All completed applications received by the scholarship committee no later than May 15, 2006 will be reviewed by a panel of educators gathered by Rev. Msgr. Thomas McDonnell, the committee chairman.
Those wishing to contact the bank regarding this program are encouraged to reach Jack Forbush at email@example.com or 617.269.5773.
“We at Mt. Washington Bank see this as one way to not only give back to the communities we serve, but to make an investment in the future,” noted Merritt.
