Norwich Women's Club Scholarships
Application Deadline: March 1, 2024
Norwich students have received more than $800,000 in awards through the Norwich Women's Club Scholarship fund (formerly the Marion Cross Scholarship Fund) since 1964. The fund was originally named in honor of Marion Cross, a teacher and principal in Norwich for over 40 years.
Scholarships from the Norwich Women's Club are open to residents of Norwich who are pursuing post secondary education or training at an accredited institution. The priority for NWC scholarships is for students just graduating from high school, but students and adults of all ages who can demonstrate financial need are encouraged to apply.
Those interested in applying for NWC scholarships need to apply through VSAC (Vermont Student Assistance Corporation) and should obtain the VSAC Scholarship Booklet. The current booklet is for the academic year 2024-2025; available here: Read here: VSAC Scholarships Booklet
The booklets are also available in the Hanover High School guidance office, the Norwich Public Library, by calling VSAC TOLL-FREE: 888-253-4819 or by E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org
Applicants will complete the confidential application, which requires a financial statement as well as short essays about financial need, high school/applicable experience, and future goals.
The completed application must be mailed or submitted to VSAC on or before the March 1, 2024 deadline. Applications postmarked after the closing date will not be processed. Incomplete applications will not be processed by VSAC and cannot be considered by the Norwich Women's Club Scholarship Committee.
