Richard A. Ferrier Scholarship Application Open

Richard A. Ferrier Scholarship 

Application period is now open!


History and Purpose

A resident of Bowdoinham for many years, Richard Ferrier left a remarkable gift to his community through the Richard A. Ferrier Scholarship Fund…the gift of an education.  Richard knew that there are many different ways to learn and that the journey itself is an important part of the process.  His legacy supports Bowdoinham students in their journey and encourages them to consider the road less traveled.

This scholarship is for the “road less traveled,” meaning opportunities beyond the traditional school environment.  Have you always wanted to take riding lessons? Do you picture yourself backpacking with Outward Bound?  Want to perfect your soccer skills at a summer camp?  Do you want to take dance lessons? How about taking up guitar? This fund will help you pursue your passion.  What do you want to do?

 Eligibility Criteria

Residents of Bowdoinham between the ages of 13 and 18 as of June 1 this year are encouraged to apply.  There is a preference for applicants for whom a scholarship will make a demonstrated difference in his/her ability to participate in a program.

Applications can be found in the Town Office or click here.
