William H. and Elizabeth Gray Danforth

As the former Chancellor and First Lady of Washington University, the Danforths inspired countless others with their values, character, and commitment. 

Dr. Danforth spent 20 years at the university as a medical resident, faculty member, and, eventually, Vice Chancellor for Medical Affairs. He began serving the university as its 13th Chancellor in 1971. When he retired 24 years later, he was credited with leading the effort that molded the University into one of the nation’s finest teaching and research institutions. Following his retirement as Chancellor, Dr. Danforth served as chairman of the Board of Trustees for four years and now is the University’s Chancellor Emeritus. 

Dr. Danforth and the late Mrs. Danforth devoted countless hours to building the university and maintaining ties with its students and alumni. But their reach has extended well beyond the University. Dr. Danforth continues to be one of St. Louis’ most highly regarded public citizens and a tireless champion of the community. 

The Danforth Scholars Program is funded by friends of the Danforths.

Scholarship Name: Lesley University’s Urban Scholars Initiative

Status: OPEN

Posted Date: October 31, 2019

Due Date: February 15, 2020

At Lesley University, we believe that potential isn’t defined by income level. That’s why we developed the Urban Scholars Initiative (USI). Launched in 2013, the program supports the financial, academic, and emotional needs of young adults, most of whom are the first in their families to go to college.

Urban Scholars Initiative provides tuition assistance, tutoring, and mentoring to enable low-income students to graduate from college with modest or no loan debt. To identify talented students, we’ve partnered with nonprofit organizations that prepare low-income students for the demands of higher education.

Families know that a college education is the key to economic opportunity. College graduates earn 84 percent more over their lifetimes than individuals with only a high school diploma, according to a 2011 Georgetown University study. But high costs can put college out of reach for many families.

By lifting many of the financial pressures—from tuition bills to books and class supplies—we help students focus on what matters most: their education. And providing greater access to college is critical to helping students realize their potential—whatever their background.

At its core, the Urban Scholars Initiative has a social justice mission. We want to close the education gap between low-income students and their higher-income peers. By helping these extraordinary students achieve their dream, we’re expanding Lesley’s outreach and transforming lives.

Our Urban Scholars receive:

  • Tuition discount of 50 percent off Lesley tuition each year for four years of undergraduate study
  • Book stipend to minimize the cost of textbooks
  • Opportunities for additional scholarships to decrease costs. USI students with a demonstrated financial need greater than 50 percent of tuition may apply for an additional donor-supported scholarship.
  • Peer mentoring: second-year USI students mentor first-year students
  • Advising to help set goals and expectations and to assess progress
  • Monthly seminars on topics ranging from professional development to personal health and well-being in college and beyond
  • Academic support such as tutoring
  • Career-oriented internships to gain hand-on experience (all undergraduate students at Lesley complete internships in their fields of interest)

To be eligible, students must have:

  • Participated in, and been recommended by, one of Lesley University’s partner organizations in the Greater Boston area: Artists for Humanity, Bottom Line, Boston Red Sox Urban Scholars Foundation, Breakthrough Boston, Higher Education Resource Center (HERC), KIPP Through Challenge, La Vida Scholars, Let’s Get Ready, Raw Art Works, Steps to Success (Brookline High School), Summer Search, The Graduate Support Program (Nativity Preparatory School), The Stepping Stone Foundation, and Trinity Education for Excellence Program (TEEP)
  • Met all criteria for undergraduate admission to Lesley University
  • Demonstrated financial need (determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students with DACA/undocumented status may apply without submitting a FAFSA

Program requirements:

  • Attend USI Summer Transition Week—All newly enrolled students are required to participate in the weeklong introduction to Lesley University and the USI program. Usually held during the second week of August (Sunday to Friday).
  • Remain in good academic standing—All students must remain in good academic standing and make satisfactory progress toward degree completion to remain eligible for the USI scholarship and any other related scholarships. A minimum 2.5 GPA is required.

Shawn J McDuff passed away at the age of 49 on December 31, 2017. He was afflicted with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and outlived all the expectations that were given to him by his medical team. He was the consummate and most loyal New England sports fan that lived. He served as the Muscular Dystrophy State Poster Child for two years which enabled him to teach people about his disease and that he was a typical child that wanted to play and learn as others do.

Shawn was the one of the first disabled students to attend public school versus homeschooling. He received his Bachelor’s degree of Social Work from Salem State University and worked his entire career at the Independent Living Center of the North Shore and Cape Ann. He was the Deputy Director of the Center. He was an advocate for all his clients and helped them with services, support and compassion so that they too could live independently. He had the use of only one finger and had a breathing machine on his chair to assist him yet he went to work every day to help others. He gave of himself for others at the job he loved for 27 years.

Scholarship Name: The Humane Society of the United States Shaw-Worth Memorial

Status: NOT YET AVAILABLE

Posted Date: January 1, 2018

Due Date: March 15, 2018

Since 1965, the award has been assisting students who, in the course of working in the service of animals, demonstrate a deep respect for animals and people.

Administered by The HSUS, the award provides up to $3,500, which may be divided among multiple recipients. Each award is given as payment to the college, university, or specialized training academy at which the recipient will be matriculating. Students from New England public, private, parochial and vocational schools are eligible.

Actions meriting the award may include long-term, direct work on behalf of animals; inspiring leadership in animal protection organizations; papers, speeches or presentations on humane topics; and heroic rescues of animals in danger. A humane attitude, an understanding of humane ethics and past performance on behalf of animals are essential. A passive liking for animals or the mere desire to enter an animal care field does not justify the award, nor does animal conservation for the purpose of maintaining hunting stocks. High scholastic standing is not a requisite for this scholarship; please do not include academic transcripts in the application. Financial need is also not a consideration.

Applications may be submitted by any high school senior in New England. There is no standardized application form to complete. Applications should be written in letter form and include:

  • student name and school
  • student home address and phone number
  • a narrative of the student’s achievements in animal protection
  • a discussion of his or her attitude toward animals
  • a description of activities done to promote animal protection
  • plans for future humane/animal protection work (in either professional or volunteer capacity)

Applicants must provide documentation of the activities cited and recommendations from at least three people. Supporting letters from teachers, mentors, supervisors, peers and other observers are also helpful. Students may review the rubric guiding the assessment of applications.

If you have or are close to having a 3.0 GPA, you may be eligible to apply for the Stephen Phillips Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Since Mrs. Phillips awarded the first scholarships in 1991, over $55 million in awards has been given to more than 3,700 students who attended colleges all across the country. This year, the Phillips Scholarship Fund’s new and renewal awards total over $3.3 million, including almosy $2.1 million to 266 Massachusetts students for the 2018-2019 academic year, with new scholarships ranging from $3,000 to $15,000 annually. Every year, at least one Lynn English student has received this scholarship.

High school seniors entering college and returning college students attending accredited U.S. colleges or universities full-time are eligible to apply for the scholarship. Awards are limited to students in undergraduate study and to those seeking their first bachelor’s degree.

For many students, knowing that they have received scholarships can greatly influence their choice of college.

Students interested in being notified of a decision before the May 1st reply date need to have their scholarship application materials in order to submit an early application by April 3rd.

Students will be notified of one of the following decisions: awarded a scholarship, deferred to the regular application pool, or not awarded a scholarship for this year.

Any high school applicant who submits the New High School Application by 12:00 noon on April 3rd, but after the 300 quota has been reached, will automatically be deferred to the regular application process. These applicants will be notified by email shortly after the April 3rd deadline to let them know that their application will be considered with all applications submitted by the May 1st deadline. Deferred applicants will also receive an email notification in mid-June notifying them of a final decision.

Tips for Applicants:

  • Applicants should check the financial eligibility calculator on the website before applying for the scholarship.
  • Students should highlight their service to others. This can be through community service or responsibilities at home, at their workplace or within their school community.

Candidates must mail the required information with the application (official high school transcript and letter of recommendation from the principal, guidance counselor or teacher, and a coach) to:

The Boston Globe Foundation

1 Exchange Place
Suite 201
Boston MA 02109

An independent panel of judges will gather to judge the submissions in May and scholarship recipients will be notified before Memorial Day.

What kind of student-athlete are we looking for?

The ultimate example of a scholar-athlete should:

  1. Play three sports. One is OK, but he/she better be All-Scholastic in that sport. Two is better and more impressive, but three … that’s the jackpot.
  2. Be captain of those three sports. Our scholar-athlete should be the leader of his/her team.
  3. Have league honors. Do others think much of this player? A three-time league all-star in a single sport is very impressive. And all-star honors in two different sports is even more impressive.
  4. Have strong academics. High class rank, strong SAT scores, difficult courses and headed to a top college. Gym doesn’t count.
  5. Extracurricular activities both in and out of school. We want the Senior Class President. We want the editor of the yearbook. We want the person who organized the entire school to shovel driveways for the elderly this winter. Doing the Walk for Hunger once is nice. But that’s a one-hit wonder. We’re looking for someone with a real commitment to serve their school and outside community.

Scholarship Name: Michael Koskey / Hellenic Scholarship Trust

Status: CLOSED

Posted Date: April 22, 2019

Due Date: May 14, 2019

Following the untimely death of Michael N. Koskey in 1957, a dedicated educator and tireless worker for the St. George Community of Greater Lynn, a group of men and women established this scholarship fund. The purpose of the fund is to inspire our youth to strive for the scholastic excellence and ideals exemplified by Michael Koskey;s life.

Michael Koskey was a teacher and principal in the Lynn Public Schools. He attended Salem State and Boston University and received degrees in English and Education. A lifelong resident of Lynn, Mr. Koskey brought up three children in the St. George Greek Orthodox Church, where he served tirelessly. As a well-respected and loved principal of the Lincoln and Burrill Elementary Schools, this thoughtful person would place a flower in a vase on the desk of each teacher on the opening day of school.

High School STEM Scholarship for Aspiring Commercial Drone Pilots

Are you a high school student interested in drones? Or are you a high school educator who’s passionate about STEM education and inspiring your students to get more involved in sUAS (small unmanned aerial systems)?

These days there are literally hundreds of different jobs you can do as a drone pilot—from working as an aerial cinematographer who uses high quality camera drones, to doing aerial inspections for mining or construction companies, to doing forestry surveys for conservation efforts, to helping farmers grow crops more efficiently, all the way to racing FPV drones.

It really is incredible all of the different ways people are using drones in professional settings. As drones become cheaper and technology continues to improve, the possibilities for different kinds of work in the drone industry have grown like crazy, and there is now a strong job market for certified drone pilots. And aside from work, flying a drone is just plain fun!

To support high school students interested in furthering their STEM studies and preparing for their future by becoming a certified drone pilot, Drone Pilot Ground School is offering a scholarship just for high school students, to help them study for the test required to get a Remote Pilot Certificate—called the Part 107 test—which is a requirement for working as a drone pilot in the United States.

The scholarship provides free, unlimited access to Drone Pilot Ground School’s remote test prep course to help drone pilots pass the FAA’s Part 107 exam (the course usually costs $299).

In addition, the first 100 students to be selected will have their testing fee paid for by Drone Pilot Ground School (the test usually costs $150).

Start your scholarship application right now, or read on to learn more.

About the Scholarship

The goal of the scholarship is to support high school students who are serious about becoming a certified drone pilot by helping them prepare for the FAA’s Part 107 test. The Part 107 test covers everything you need to know to fly a drone commercially in the U.S. In case you’re wondering, the minimum age required to be a commercial drone pilot is 16.

An additional goal is to help further the use of drones in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. Drones have been used in the classroom in a variety of STEM settings over the last several years, and we’re excited for the possibilities drones present when it comes to helping students become passionate about STEM subjects.

Who’s Eligible?

Eligible students must:

  • Be at least 16 years old
  • Be currently enrolled in high school
  • Live in the U.S.

How Many Students Can Apply?

There are an unlimited number of scholarships available, but only the first 100 students accepted will also have their Part 107 testing fee covered.

What Is the Deadline?

There is no deadline—applicants will be accepted on a rolling, case-by-case basis.

About Drone Pilot Ground School

Drone Pilot Ground School is UAV Coach’s flagship remote course. The course was designed to help drone pilots prepare for the FAA’s Part 107 Aeronautical Knowledge Test (also known as the Part 107 test) to gain an FAA Remote Pilot Certificate.

Over 7,000 commercial drone pilots from companies like Intel, NBC, and GoPro have been trained by Drone Pilot Ground School, and over 99% of Drone Pilot Ground School students pass the Part 107 test on their first try.

Successful scholarship applicants will demonstrate serious intent to study for and pass the FAA Part 107 exam by providing thorough, thoughtful answers to the three questions asked, as well as securing a strong letter of recommendation. Answers that only contain a few sentences and appear hastily written / have spelling and grammar errors will likely not result in a successful outcome.
