Annual Student Scholarship Week at Linden Ponds

Hingham, MA -- Thirty two students working at Linden Ponds from all over the South Shore are participating in the annual Student Scholarship Week this week to raise money for the Linden Ponds Student Scholarship Fund.

The Linden Ponds Scholarship Fund is for student employees who plan to attend a college or accredited trade school beginning fall 2015.  The students need to have worked at Linden Ponds during their junior and senior year and put in 1000 hours of work.  Those students will receive a total of $5,000 over four years of college.  The money will be dispersed directly to their schools in $625-per-semester increments, for a maximum of eight semesters or four years.

“Thirty two students are eligible for the scholarship this year”, said Mairi Bleakie, Philanthropy Manager, Linden Ponds.  “Most of the events are free so we hope to raise money by donations, not ticket sales.   The students work hard to make this week come together and the residents love coming to all of the events!”

Events this year include a Spelling Bee, Car Wash, “Guess Who?” contest, Bake Sale, the Award Ceremony and more.
