MWC Scholarship Fund and Application

The Scholarship Fund is the primary focus of our charity efforts throughout the year.  We have, over the years, been instrumental in bringing relief to deserving students of all ages in the Town of Moultonborough who wish to further their education and expand their horizons through the power of learning.

Scholarships are not only for Moultonborough Academy students but also for adults in Moultonborough who wish to begin or continue their education. 

The Chairperson is appointed by the President with input from Executive and Scholarship committees.  The annual term may be renewed on a yearly basis.  The Chairperson is responsible for coordinating fundraising activities for the Scholarship committee and executes and distributes the applications.  The Committee selects the recipients of scholarships.

Fund-raising expenses associated with a specific activity of the scholarship fund shall be paid from that activity with net profits returned to the scholarship fund.
