HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS INVITED TO ENTER THE 2020 DAWBER ESSAY CONTEST

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 (emanders@bu.edu) 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.
