26 STUDENTS ELIGIBLE FOR SCHOLARSHIP THIS YEAR
Hingham, MA - Students working at Linden Ponds will participate in the annual Student Scholarship Week, May 20-25, 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 2012. 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 $4,000 over four years of college. The money will be dispersed directly to their schools in $500-per-semester increments, for a maximum of eight semesters or four years.
"We have a number of events planned all week long to help raise money for the Student Scholarship Fund," said Susan DeMello, Staff Development Manager, Linden Ponds. "Twenty six students are eligible for the scholarship this year. This year's theme is "Let's Help Them Fly" amd people who live here will have the chance to attend a spelling bee, watch a fashion show and/or play Jeopardy at 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 look forward to it every year."
