This summer, the Allston-Brighton Community Scholars Program will award five Allston-Brighton residents full tuition remission on any one course at the Harvard Extension School for the Fall 2006 term. Deadline for applications is Monday, July 31st.
Residents interested in applying for the scholarship must fill out a Harvard Extension School application (available at the Honan-Allston Library) and provide a short personal statement (no longer than one page) describing their involvement in the Allston-Brighton Community. Completed application materials should be submitted to the Honan Allston Branch Library by July 31st. Upon review of the submitted applications, five Community Scholars will be selected by the Allston Civic Association Scholarship Committee for the coming fall semester. Five more scholarships will be awarded in the spring. Scholarship recipients will be responsible for payment of the $50 registration fee, books, course supplies and parking.
The Harvard University Office of Community Affairs and the Division of Continuing Education at Harvard introduced the Allston-Brighton Community Scholars Program and other scholarship programs specifically for Allston Brighton residents in 2003, as part of Harvard's partnership with the City of Boston and the Allston community. These scholarship programs include the Allston Brighton English Language Program, the Conant Fellowships and the Brian J. Honan Scholarships.
