About the Committee

The Scholarship Fund was established at Town Meeting in 1995. The Scholarship Committee is responsible for collecting and reviewing applications for the Town Scholarship every March. Scholarships are awarded to deserving high school seniors who are residents of Shrewsbury. Awards are based on financial need, character, community service and academic achievement.
