Atkinson Scholarship Applications are due on February 1, 2019. The program is open to graduating seniors at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School and the dependents of Town of Sudbury and School Department employees who attend other high schools.
The program offers eligible students a maximum of $5,000 per year in scholarship assistance for approved post-secondary or vocational training.
Candidates must first meet a certain threshold of financial need. Applicants are then selected based on past academic performance and future potential as well as the desire and ability to contribute to society through community service, the advancement of a field of interest, or the sharing of a skill or talent. Course grades, standardized test scores, involvement in school and community activities, work experience, letters of recommendation, and a written essay will be considered in the recipient selection process. Semi-finalists are invited for a personal interview. Up to 15 new awards are made each year. Scholarship recipients may reapply for the Atkinson Scholarship annually during their undergraduate education. Subsequent awards are based on appropriate academic performance and continued financial need.
