As an association of business, professional and non-profit leaders, the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce promotes the commercial, industrial and economic interests of the community. Recognizing the symbiotic relationships among all segments of the community, and seeking to foster life-skill learning, the Chamber offers scholarships to area students who intend to continue their post-secondary education in business or business-related fields. While a “business focus” can be beneficial to the applicant, there are many facets considered in the decision process as many academic achievements, extracurricular activities and non-business courses of study prepare students for meaningful business careers. Thus, all students are encouraged to apply and all properly completed and submitted applications will be considered.
From the pool of applicants submitting all requested information, the scholarship recipients will be chosen on the basis of their biographical essay, achievements, scholarship and financial needs. This year, the 2018 Scholarship Award is $1,000 per recipient.
- A Biographical Essay in letter form addressed to the Scholarship Committee. Be sure to include information that you feel qualifies you as a good candidate for this scholarship and to mention any unusual personal circumstances. We are interested in your professional goals, and plans for the future, any awards you have received, extra curricular activities, community involvement, volunteering and work experience.
- TWO letters of reference, ONE FROM A SCHOOL PERSON and ONE FROM A BUSINESS OR COMMUNITY LEADER who can speak to your work or volunteer experiences.
- A copy of your secondary school transcript including an activity summary whenever possible.
