Scholarship Grant Program

In keeping with the Association's broader objectives, it was decided at the 1979 Annual Meeting to establish the Hartwells of America Scholarship Fund. The first awards were made for the 1980-1981 academic year and since have ranged in amounts from $100 to $500, depending on the funds available and the number of applicants.


Any child of a parent surnamed Hartwell, or any lineal descendant of William of Concord, Massachusetts (1613-1690) who will be enrolled as a student in any post-secondary school degree program, full or part time, is invited to apply. Selections among applicants will be based on financial need, although that is neither the sole nor necessarily the primary criterion. In selecting the deserving applicant or applicants, the Scholarship Committee shall give consideration as well to the applicants biographical information and such other factors as in its discretion it deems warranted. Any information contained in an application shall be considered only by the Scholarship Committee and shall otherwise remain confidential.
It is not required that an applicant attend the Annual Meeting in order to be eligible (although new Hartwells are always welcomed). However, if a recipient will be unable to attend,his or her award will be conditioned upon his or her agreeing to write to the Association, before the Annual Meeting next following the award, and describe in what manner the scholarship benefitted the recipient during the school year.


Awards under the Hartwells of America Scholarship Grant Program are intended to be one-time grants. Therefore, only one scholarship will be awarded to an individual during their post-secondary studies.
Scholarship grants are available only to those applicants whose dues to the Hartwells of America Association are paid currently as of the date of the Reunion at which the grants are awarded or to those applicants whose parent or grandparent has been a duly paid up member of the Association for five consecutive years ending as of the date of the Reunion at which the grants are awarded.


Applications for any academic year may be submitted up to two Saturdays before the date of the Annual Meeting next preceding the academic year for which the scholarship is sought. (i.e., the application for the academic year 2015-2016 will be due on or before June 13, 2015, two Saturdays before the reunion date of Saturday, June 27, 2015).
