Beverly Jeanne Welsh Scholarship Applications Available For Summit Young Women

March 24, 2014 at 3:06 PM

SUMMIT, NJ - Applications for the Beverly Jeanne Welsh Scholarship Fund will be available through the guidance offices at Summit High School, Kent Place School, and Oak Knoll School beginning April 1.

The Welsh Scholarship is open to young women who demonstrate financial need, who are permanent residents of Summit, and who currently attend or have graduated from one of these Summit high schools.  It is available to students who will either enter college this fall, are currently enrolled as undergraduates, or who have completed an undergraduate degree and are seeking assistance for graduate or professional study.  The scholarship, administered through Kent Place School, will grant awards to local young women demonstrating, in addition to financial need, the qualities valued by Kent Place: academic excellence, leadership, service to the community, citizenship and character.

A $1 million bequest from the estate of long-time Summit resident Evelyn Welsh endowed the Beverly Jeanne Welsh Scholarship Fund that provides the funds for the scholarships. The Welsh Scholarship Fund, which also provides financial aid for Kent Place students, honors the memory of Welsh's daughter Beverly Jeanne, a 1952 graduate of Kent Place School.
