The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation is pleased to announce the 2022 scholarship recipients for the Bill and Esther Levy Scholarship Fund. They are: Taylor Williams, Tamworth; Taylor Garland, Glen; Maya Gove, Conway; Jack Martin, Conway; and William McCarthy, Conway.
In addition to the new recipients, the Fund will continue to support 12 other students previously selected for up to four years of their post-secondary education.
A total of $78,500 was awarded for scholarships in 2022. The Levy Scholarships have been awarded since 2004 — to date $1.42 million has been committed to supporting deserving area students.
The Bill and Esther Levy Scholarship Fund was established in 2003 by the Pequawket Foundation from a legacy received from the Levy estate.
The Levys were interested in supporting students whose family resources might prevent them from attending college. While awards are primarily based on financial need, merit factors including academic work, extracurricular activities, community and volunteer activities, and work experience are also taken into consideration.
Each year the Bill and Esther Levy Scholarship Advisory Committee reviews applications from qualified graduating seniors from Kennett High School. Recipients are supported for up to four years of an undergraduate academic program.
Students interested in applying for the Levy Scholarship in 2023 should submit an application to the Charitable Foundation after February 1, 2023. Applications will be available after that date on the Foundation’s website: www.nhcf.org/scholarships.
