New scholarship fund to distribute more than $100k annually to NH engineering students

The Norman F. and Marilyn W. Jones Scholarship Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation will make its first awards this year

A new scholarship fund at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation will distribute more than $100,000 annually to New Hampshire students pursuing bachelor’s degrees in engineering.

The Norman F. and Marilyn W. Jones Scholarship Fund, created by a bequest, will distribute multiyear awards to engineering students. Students in electrical, aeronautical and mechanical engineering and related fields and who are rising sophomores, juniors or seniors, are eligible to apply for the funds.

“This scholarship fund is an amazing gift for New Hampshire’s students,” said Judy Burrows, Charitable Foundation director of student aid. “This fund will provide a significant resource to help so many talented New Hampshire students get the education they need.”

The fund is positioned to continue to help New Hampshire students in perpetuity.

Students will be considered for Jones scholarships based on academic excellence, leadership potential, passion for the field and financial need. Finalists will be interviewed by and asked to make a presentation to a committee of industry professionals who will help select recipients.

Size of scholarship awards will vary based on financial need and number of applicants.

Students interested in applying should complete an online application through the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation’s online scholarship application portal. Eligible students will automatically be identified and will also be considered for the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation’s nearly 400 scholarship funds. Applications will be available starting on February 1, 2019 and applications are due by April 12, 2019 at 5:00 pm ET.

The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation is the largest provider of publicly available scholarships in New Hampshire. The Foundation awards almost $6 million in scholarships to about 1,500 New Hampshire students each year.
