The City of Somerville seeks one new member for the Municipal Scholarship Committee, and all Somerville residents are invited to apply. Applicants must be Somerville residents. Boards and commissions offer an opportunity for residents with a range of experience, skills, expertise, and perspectives to share their talents and insights with their community.
The mission of the Municipal Scholarship Committee is to award scholarships to high school graduates to use toward their higher education expenses. The funding for the scholarships comes from voluntary contributions made by Somerville taxpayers. Scholarship Committee members develop a meeting schedule, review redacted scholarship applications, set criteria for scholarship awards, and make award recommendations.
The committee typically meets for a few hours a week over a four- to five-week period. Members are appointed by the Mayor. These are volunteer positions.
Applications are due Friday, August 5. Interested residents should submit a statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org or Treasury Department, 93 Highland Ave., Somerville, MA 02143. Please contact Linda Dubuque at email@example.com or 617-625-6600 ext. 3500 with questions.
