The Washington Township Historical Society will be awarding a scholarship to a graduating senior who lives in the township and plans to attend a two- or four-year college or university in the fall.
The $500 scholarship will be awarded to a student who plans to pursue a history related major, or has demonstrated an interest in history on the local or regional level, or who has done a project directly benefitting the Washington Township Historical Society.
The applicant must include a 400-500 word essay showing the student’s interest in history while in high school. The format and quality of this essay will be taken into consideration.
