Each year the Swarthmore Centennial Foundation — the charitable organization funding the development of Central Park next to borough hall – offers a $6,000 scholarship to an outstanding high school senior who lives in Swarthmore. Students are selected based on their scholarship, citizenship and record of community service.
If you know of a deserving senior, please encourage him or her to apply. Applicants must submit high school transcripts, letters outlining their community service activities, and short essays on one of the following topics:
“My life in Swarthmore”
“My ideas for making Swarthmore a better place”
“The impact a Swarthmore organization has had on my life”
Completed applications must be received by Friday, June 17, at the Swarthmore Centennial Foundation, P.O. Box 493, Swarthmore, PA 19081.
The scholarship will be paid in $1,500 increments over four years to a student in good academic standing. Current recipients are Phoebe Richardson (2015), Marissa Lee (2014), Jordan Scull (2013) and Hart Clements (2012).
