John Galvani, President, and the Board Members of the Friends of FHS, announce two scholarships for 2020 based on an essay contest: a $1,000 Award and a $500 Award.
Eligibility: Open to children, stepchildren, and grandchildren of FHS participants. Applicants must be graduating from high school in 2020 and planning to attend college in the fall 2020.
To apply: Only two items are needed:
1) an email with the applicant’s name, address, telephone number, and college and career plans (roughly a two-sentence description), and;
2) a 1,000-word essay titled What it means to be a participant in medical research in the Framingham Heart Study. Applicants may tell a story, conduct an interview, or pursue any angle of interest. Please fact-check and proofread before submitting.
Email the essay as an attachment to Emily Manders (email@example.com) by Friday, May 8, 2020.
We will confirm receipt of all essays within one business day. If you don’t receive a confirmation, please call (508) 935-3443.
The Friends will review the essays and notify recipients by May 29, 2020. Recipients will be invited to accept their awards at the FHS Research Center, if re-opened to the public at that time.
