Scholarship Eligibility Requirements:
Recent inquiries have pointed up the need for a policy statement from the Scholarship Committee concerning what students and schools are eligible for financial aid from Third Haven. The committee has been formulating such a policy in recent meetings, and it reads as follows:
- Any member, attender or member or attender's immediate family member is eligible to receive financial aid.
- Scholarships will be awarded to students attending Quaker secondary schools; and Quaker and nonQuaker colleges and vocational schools. No scholarships will be awarded to students in grades K-8, nonQuaker secondary schools, or graduate or professional school.
- For students pursuing postsecondary education (college, vocational training), the Scholarship Committee will award scholarships to students attending both private and public schools.
- The basic award is $500 per academic year. Annual scholarships of $1,000 will be awarded to students attending Quaker secondary schools and colleges. Partial scholarships are available for part-time students.
- Should the amount of money in the Operating Fund fall short of the total of approved requests for financial aid, scholarships will be reduced accordingly. By the same token, scholarships may be reduced from year to year for the same reason.
