2019 Annual Report for the Scholarship Committee of Third Haven Friends Meeting

The Society of Friends has considered the education of its members of high importance going back to its earliest times. Two of its schools, Penn Charter, in Chestnut Hill, PA and Friends Select School in Philadelphia, were founded as early as 1689. This committee continues to encourage the education of its members through Scholarship grants to students.

Because of the generosity of the Meeting and individual Friends, special grants were made to Katie Claggett for her internship at the Quaker United Nations Organization and to Juliette Neill to attend Summer School at Yale. For this Fall semester we have increased grants to $800 for those attending Quaker Schools and $400 for non-Quaker schools. For the Spring we hope to increase grants again. Our policy remains that those attending Quaker schools receive double the grant as those in non-Quaker schools.

The Committee has discussed further promotion of Friends Schools for students and their families who are approaching high school and college. One thought is to offer visits to the schools—Sandy Spring, George School, Westtown. Another would be to invite the schools to send representatives to a gathering which we would hold—possibly in January or February.

Our Scholarship recipients for the Fall are: year & school amount
Nathan Mullen senior, Wesleyan University $400
Laurence Claggett senior, St. Mary's University $400
Juliette Neil junior, Yale University $400
Emma Leibman University of Maryland $400
Maya Claggett sophomore, Earlham University $800
Sophie Neil freshman, Georgetown University $400

Total: $2,800
