Organization: Middlesex Savings Bank
Application deadline: March 20, 2024
To be eligible for the A. James Lavoie Scholarship, applicants must demonstrate financial need, academic achievement, and community involvement. They must also plan to attend a four-year college program, and graduate from one of the many public, charter, or vocational high schools in the communities the bank serves. The winner is selected from among eligible applicants by an independent committee on the basis of strength and quality of submitted essays.
Organization: Greater Framingham Running Club
Scholarship application deadline: March 31, 2024.
Natick High School student-athletes are among those eligible for two $500 scholarships sponsored by the Greater Framingham Running Club.
The scholarships will be presented to local high school runners who plan to attend either a two or four-year accredited college or university and who also intend to run cross-country, track or recreationally while in college. The winning applicants must exemplify dedication, leadership, running talent, commitment and academic achievement. That is, the award will not necessarily go to the runners in the greater Framingham area with the most success in running, but the track or cross-country team members who have always been committed and consistently work hard to persevere, combined with academic achievement.
