2017 Annual Report for the Scholarship Committee of Third Haven Friends Meeting

The Fifth Query on Education asks:

What help do we provide for the children and adults in our Meeting to pursue the education they seek, whether academic, technical, or vocational? Do we make provision for the children in our Meeting to attend a Friends schools?

Our students this year are:

Maya Claggett graduated from Annapolis High School and is taking a gap year before beginning at Earlham College next year.

This Fall term Katie Claggett will be living and studying in Morocco. Those of us who attended Meeting on September 3rd could feel her excitement as she told us of her plans to live with a Moroccan family. "I'll be home for Christmas!" she said. Then she'll be back to Guilford to complete her junior year.

We are happy for Brandt Bethke and Sam Mullen who have both completed their undergraduate years. Brandt was at George Washington University and Sam at Drexel University.

Looking ahead, Sophie Neil is a junior at St. Andrews School in Delaware. Max McCall and Serena Claggett are in 9th grade. After that there will be a smaller but steady group of children with Maeve Mufson, Guiseppe Coulburn, Liam, Finley and Riley Ewing, and possibly others.

Owing to continued support of the Meeting, the generosity of people who have made contributions, and the growth of the Fund held at Friends Fiduciary Corporation, a decision was made to increase our grants. Annual amount will now be $1200 for those attending Quaker schools and $600 for those at other schools. Part time students receive half these amounts. In the Spring we plan to revisit this with the hope of a further increase. As of June 30, 2017 the Scholarship Endowment Fund at Friends Fiduciary Corp. was at $120,449.63. The sum of $1420 was contributed in memory of Frank Zeigler.

Respectfully submitted,
Martha L. Hawkinson, Clerk
