Railroad club solicits candidates for scholarship awards

Written by 

The New England Railroad Club has announced its 2010 plans for its annual Academic Scholarship Awards, eligible to children or grandchildren of club members in good standing. Applications are sought “from high school seniors who will attend an accredited institution of higher learning leading to a bachelor’s level or associate level degree, and from students already enrolled and attending such institutions.” Previous applicants are encouraged to apply once again, the club notes.

Funds will be disbursed, payable to the student, upon receipt of proof of registration for the Fall 2010 academic semester.

To apply, students must submit the following support materials with their application: academic transcripts; a letter of recommendation from teachers or academic advisers; and a one-to-two page essay describing the applicant’s career goals and personal history.

Should they wish, applicants may also submit a resume listing academic, work, and extracurricular activities.

Applications should be submitted no later than April 20, 2010 to the New England Railroad Club, P.O. Box 82, Lowell, MA 01853.
