Third Haven Friends Meeting Scholarship Committee
2015 Annual Report

Since it was established almost three years ago, the Scholarship Committee has been raising funds for deposit in both an Endowment and an Operating Fund. Income from the Endowment is allocated to the Operating Fund. Scholarships are awarded from the Operating Fund.

Contributions have been received from the Meeting, the Trustees, the Carriage Shed Sale, investment income and individual donors. The committee also encourages planned giving by members and attenders.

The committee allows donors to the Scholarship Fund to earmark their donations either for the Endow-ment and/or the Operating Fund. Donations that are not earmarked for either will go to the endowment fund.

The Committee strikes a balance between informality (no standardized application form) on one hand, and obtaining enough pertinent information to evaluate each applicant fairly on the other. We interview each applicant. The standard scholarship amount is $500 per academic year for full-time students. Up to $1,000 per year may be awarded to students attending Quaker schools and those who demonstrate financial hardship. In determining how much to award, we consider 5 factors:

In order to be considered, applications must be written, or Emailed, submitted by the applicant, and received by the posted deadlines unless circumstances prevent doing so.

The Third Haven Scholarship Fund has a number of objectives. They include:

The Scholarship Committee's efforts honor Third Haven's distinguished past on which we can all look back with pride. By helping our young people reach their dreams, we help to ensure that our future is bright.
