NORTH BENNINGTON -- The deadline for completion of the application for a Catherine Corcoran Scholarship Award, which is given at the annual meeting of the North Bennington High School Alumni Association, is rapidly approaching. The post mark deadline for an application is June 3, 2014. Applications may be obtained at the Mount Anthony Union High School guidance office or by calling Faye Hardy at 802-442-4075.

Qualified applicants must be a direct or legally adopted descendent of a North Bennington High School alumnus, who will be pursuing a post-secondary education at a trade school, junior college or college. Other qualifications for the awards shall include financial need, academic achievement, effort and community involvement. Students who are continuing their education may reapply each year for one of these awards.

The decision as to the recipients of each annual award shall be made by a majority of the Catherine Corcoran Scholarship standing committee. It is hoped that young people benefiting financially from this scholarship fund will also benefit from an understanding of Catherine Corcoran's profound ideals and eternal legacy.

In order to keep this scholarship thriving, donations are always needed and appreciated. The committee is grateful to those who contribute on a yearly basis.
