Town Meeting Scholarship Application
In order for the Town Meeting Scholarship Fund Committee to review this application, all questions must be answered. Please read through the entire application form before you begin.

While all current students are eligible for Town Meeting Scholarship money, the amount available varies from semester to semester, so no one is guaranteed to receive funding. Each student may apply for a Town Meeting Scholarship multiple times per semester. Typical awards are in the region of $100 to $600. No student can receive more than $1,000 from the committee during each school year. Preference is given to applications benefiting the community as a whole.

Please make your answers as specific as possible. Make an itemized list of expenses, and if you need to use an estimate, please explain your reason for doing so. When in doubt, provide more information rather than less! Applications that are detailed and that seem to have informed research put into them are more likely to be accepted.

The committee may sometimes choose to offer a lesser amount than requested to some of the applicants. If this amount is not sufficient to pursue your project, and you cannot use it, you must return it to the committee. Any money awarded by the TMSF must be used for the purpose described on the application; money not used for this purpose must be returned to the committee. The money will be given out via a check by the select board treasurer, and if you are awarded funds, you must contact the treasurer to arrange to receive the money you were granted. Receipts must be submitted to the treasurer to account for all the money awarded.

If you are filling out an application jointly with other students (in order to request money for shared equipment, etc.), each student must fill out a separate application form. You may, however, use identical information in answering questions where it applies. For students applying jointly, it must be made clear to the TMSF committee on all of your applications that you are filing jointly. We recommend that you discuss any such applications with the TMSF committee before pursuing them.

The TMSF committee will notify you of their decision via email. If you have questions about this form or the review process, please refer to the by-laws or email the TMSF committee.

There are usually two submission deadlines per semester. Time-sensitive applications may be made to the Reserve Fund by applying directly to the Selectboard. See Artcle X.A.3 of the by-laws for more details.

Where else have you looked for this funding (personal loans, parents, other committees, departmental budgets, etc.) and to what result?
