Ten High School Graduates Receive 2013 John B. Andrews Scholarship Fund Awards

NHMA Staff
Ten high school graduates have been awarded a $750 scholarship from the John B. Andrews Scholarship Fund, a 501 (c)(3) entity administered by the New Hampshire Local Government Center. The scholarships are funded through private donations, and one scholarship for 2013 was generously funded by the New Hampshire Government Finance Officers Association.

Scholarships are available to children of New Hampshire municipal, school, county, and village district employees and officials of local government units that participate in HealthTrust or Property-Liability Trust services or are members of the New Hampshire Municipal Association.

Eighty-seven scholarship applications were received this spring. Sixty New Hampshire high schools were represented in this mix. Applications were carefully reviewed by HealthTrust, Property-Liability Trust, and NHMA board members from municipalities throughout the state.

Applicants were judged on academic achievement, extracurricular school activities, community service and three letters of reference. An essay on “If I were an elected official in my town/city/school district, I would be a (name position of choice), and this is what I’d do” was also required of each applicant.

The JBA Scholarship has contributed to many deserving high school graduates on their quest for higher education.  Funding has been awarded to seniors since the Scholarship Fund was created in 2005.
