The Kristen M. Corbett Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established to honor the memory of Kristen M. Corbett. The purpose of the foundation is to award scholarships annually to graduates of Austin Preparatory High School. Shawsheen Valley Technical High School, Billerica Memorial High School, as well as students who have received a GED. Students must be enrolled in an accredited trade school, college or university. It’s difficult for students and their families to manage the mounting costs of tuition. We hope to help alleviate some of that burden for some motivated students. To date, we have awarded $9000.00 to local students. The winners are chosen anonymously based on three criteria; their response to the essay question, a demonstrated financial need and their history of work/volunteer and or extracurricular activities. This August we will award 5 $1000.00 scholarships. The 2013 scholarship application is now available and must be recieved by May 1, 2013.
Kristen M. Corbett Memorial Scholarship was founded on the idea of helping those in need. Since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help where the need is greatest.
Our team is made up entirely of volunteers. We advocate for those who need our help. Even a little help goes a long way.
That is why we are especially happy to find new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world. Do you want to support us by helping with our work? Then do not hesitate to contact us. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated!
