Esther Hawks Scholarship Trust


In September of 1870, Esther Hill Hawks became one of the first female physicians in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts. She died on May 6, 1906, and left much of her estate to charity.

By decree dated August 9, 1982 of the Probate Court, distributions are restricted to public charitable purposes. In recent years this has been mainly in the form of scholarships (not exceeding tuition and fees) to graduating Lynn High School seniors for full-time college attendance, and renewals of such scholarships in subsequent years.

The number and amount of first-time awards varies from year to year and from grantee to grantee. In recent years, out of 30-50 total grants, there were approximately 10 first-time grants, with an average grant of about $3000 each. Awards are usually announced by late-June/early-July and paid directly to the college thereafter. Awards are need-based but consider achievement, vary between awardees, do not exceed tuition and fees, or a level set annually by the Trustees.

The deadline is May 15, 2022.
